New ISO guidelines for Whistleblowing management systems

Good governance in any organization involves demonstrating accountability and fostering a “speak up” culture. To address the importance of having a secure and effective way that employees can report concerns about wrongdoing, a new ISO standard for whistleblowing has just been published.

ISO 37002, Whistleblowing management systems – Guidelines, provides guidance for implementing, managing, evaluating, maintaining and improving a robust and effective management system for whistleblowing. It is non-sector-specific and can be used by organizations of all sizes, including SMEs, as well as those with international operations.

Following the three principles of trust, impartiality and protection, the standard covers the identification and reporting of such concerns and how they are assessed and addressed. Its use will not only minimize or prevent potential losses but also ensure compliance with organizational policies and legal and social obligations.

  1. I was teaching my Organisational Resilience Specialist course last 3 days and touched upon whistleblowing policy/ process. The participants asked how to implement organisational resilience – simple to me – just pick this standard, use and keep improving. There are 100s of activities to be done in implementing organisational resilience – you can start as many as you wish at a time – one is enough.
