CP 321 Whistleblower policies
Released 7 August 2019. Comments close 18 September 2019.
This consultation paper seeks feedback on our proposed guidance for entities that must have a whistleblower policy—public companies, large proprietary companies and proprietary companies that are trustees of registrable superannuation entities.
Our proposed guidance will help these entities establish, implement and maintain a whistleblower policy that complies with their obligations under the revised corporate sector whistleblowing regime in Pt 9.4AAA of the Corporations Act.
This paper also seeks feedback on whether ASIC should provide legislative relief to public companies that are small not-for-profits or charities.
We are seeking feedback from entities, their advisers and other interested stakeholders.
