EU Directive Transposition 

“Wijziging van de Wet Huis voor klokkenluiders”

READ THE FULL BILL (NL)

Whistleblowers protection already in place

The Netherlands already had a comprehensive framework for whistleblowers protection in place with The House of Whistleblowers Act (Wet Huis voor klokkenluiders). 

However, changes need to be introduced in order to comply with the Directive.

Current implementation status

The Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations issued, on 1 September 2022, answers to questions from the House of Representatives on the amended bill for a Whistleblowing Protection Act (‘the Bill’) implementing the Directive on the Protection of Persons who Report Breaches of Union Law (Directive (EU) 2019/1937) (‘the Whistleblowing Directive’). In particular, the Ministry of the Interior highlighted that the primary purpose of the Bill is to comply with obligations under the Whistleblowing Directive. 

The Federal Government has agreed on a draft whistleblowing law, and the new law is now expected to be adopted in the Autumn of 2022.
