Why Implement a Whistleblowing Facility at CANSA?
- Good Corporate Governance – King I, II & III reports recommend implementing a facility to give potential whistleblowers the mechanisms to report wrong doing in the public or private sector.
- It forms part of a Fraud Prevention Programme to protect the company and its shareholders.
- Companies Act (2008) – stipulates the requirement for companies to install a mechanism / process whereby stakeholders have the means to confidentially report irregular activities within the company to senior management.
- The implementation of such a facility became a legal requirement when the new Act became law in May 2011. (section 159 – “Whistle Blowers”).
