14-032MR ASIC information sheet on whistleblowers and whistleblower protection

Tuesday 18 February 2014

ASIC has released information about its approach to dealing with whistleblower reports.

The information sheet is part of ASIC’s commitment to improve its communication and handling of information brought to its attention by whistleblowers.

It explains:

‘In our major submission in 2013 to the Senate Inquiry into ASIC we explain how we have enhanced our approach to dealing with whistleblower reports,’ ASIC Deputy Chairman Peter Kell said.

The information sheet assists those who wish to provide information to ASIC of an inside nature.

ASIC considers all information from the public as potentially providing valuable insights into possible misconduct that we may need to act on.


Information Sheet 52 Whistleblowers and whistleblower protection (INFO 52)
ASIC’s major submission to Senate Inquiry (13-300MR)
ASIC’s wider approach to receiving tip-offs, complaints and reports of misconduct (12-245MR)


ASIC has enhanced its approach to dealing with whistleblower reports. This includes:

The updated approach to whistleblowers extends to ‘insiders’ who seek to provide information to us but who are not defined in the legislation as corporate whistleblowers (e.g. because they are no longer an employee of the company involved at the time they make the disclosure or because they do so anonymously).
