Group Whistleblowing Framework

BNP PARIBAS Group is committed to strict compliance with laws and regulations and to enforce the rules set out in the Group’s Code of Conduct.

The BNP Paribas whistleblowing framework is under the responsibility of the Professional Ethics domain of the Compliance function.

The whistleblowing system allows you to report information about a crime or an offence, a threat or harm to the public interest, a violation or an attempt to conceal a violation of applicable and binding law (laws, regulations, etc.) or a breach of the Group’s Code of Conduct.

Whistleblowing reports are handled by independent experts (Referents) in a confidential manner and in accordance with the regulations in force.

Whistleblowers are granted protection against the risk of retaliation provided by local applicable law.

Any abuse of the whistleblowing system may expose the reporting person to disciplinary sanctions or prosecution. However, the use of this system in good faith will not expose the reporting person to any disciplinary sanction, even if the facts are subsequently proven to be inaccurate or do not give rise to any follow-up.
