Implementation of the whistleblowing bill in the insurance sector: authorities’ expectations

Dear Members, Dear insurance lawyers,

The bill of 16 May 2023 transposing the Directive (EU) 2019/1937 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law has set a new legal framework in relation to the protection of whistleblowers. The bill created the Office for whistleblowers (“Office des signalements”) to help whistleblowers and monitor the implementation of the bill. It has appointed the CAA as insurance sector-specific authority to ensure compliance by insurance companies and to receive whistleblowers’ reports.

Mr Francis MAQUIL will give an introduction on the bill and explain the missions and expectations of the Office for whistleblowers.

Ms Valérie SCHEEPERS and Ms Eva GYORI will detail insurance sector-specific obligations and give insights on how the CAA intends to check compliance by insurance companies.

Mr Peter VERMEULEN will moderate the conference and give some insights on setting up the required internal reporting mechanisms in an insurance company.
