Great demand in Europe: 15 companies already taking advantage of EQS Group's SAFE CHANNEL

EQS Group has recorded a strong demand for their cloud-based whistleblowing system, SAFE CHANNEL. The software, introduced on the market only four weeks ago, is already being implemented by 15 companies in Europe. Due to numerous inquiries regarding the topic of whistleblowing, EQS is inviting interested parties to the "EQS Compliance Talk" on December 7, 2017. The topic of the event in Munich will be "Best practices: how companies benefit from a whistleblowing system."

SAFE CHANNEL is currently attracting great interest, particularly in Germany and France, as the introduction of whistleblowing systems is increasingly becoming an obligation: primarily due to the corresponding provisions of the French anti-corruption law "Sapin II", which will enter into effect in January 2018. Demand for whistleblowing solutions is also increasing due to stricter standards for responsible corporate governance introduced by the German Corporate Governance Code (DCGK). The code requires the use of a whistleblowing solution, and needs to be observed by companies in the regulated market since Spring 2017.

SAFE CHANNEL is a first choice for many companies because it meets all international compliance requirements. Employees, but also external parties, such as suppliers, service providers, or clients, can report legal violations or violations of internal guidelines in a secure way.

"The market launch of SAFE CHANNEL has been a great success. Our digital system can really score points with clients due to its flexibility and high security standards. Another important criteria for companies is that the whistleblowing system can be implemented quickly and in an uncomplicated manner", explains Moritz Homann, Director of Compliance Services at EQS Group.

EQS Compliance Talk on the subject of whistleblowing

Though the topic of whistleblowing has quickly come to the forefront of many corporate discussions, many questions remain. Questions revolve around what requirements a whistleblowing system should meet, or what are the most efficient methods for the introduction of a system. The EQS Compliance Talk provides these answers. The event will be hosted by EQS with its partner law firm, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, on December 7th, 2017 at 10 a.m. in Munich.
