EQS Group and KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) work together in the area of whistleblower systems, offering customers an integrated compliance solution. EQS Integrity Line, EQS Group's digital whistleblowing system, forms the technical basis for an anonymous and secure reporting channel and subsequent case management.
Offering full service legal counsel with an international network of member firms, KPMG Law supports legally compliant measures pertaining to whistleblowers. KPMG Law relieves companies of pre-screening and plausibility checks of detailed information, conducts case processing and legal assessment, and recommends subsequent compliance measures. Their seamless work with the Compliance & Forensic department of KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft ensures internal investigations are conducted by a single source.
"We share an understanding of how vital whistleblower systems are and are pleased that KPMG Law will be using EQS Integrity Line as the technical basis for a coherent whistleblower system," says Achim Weick, founder and CEO of EQS Group.
Dr. Bernd Federmann, Partner at KPMG Law, emphasizes the importance of effective measures with regard to whistleblowers: "A properly designed and operated whistleblower system protects both whistleblowers and those affected by divulged information, is an early warning system for risk control, and protects companies and their management from liability in the event of compliance violations. "
