The Treasury Laws Amendment (Enhancing Whistleblower Protections) Act 2019 (Act) introduced harsher penalties for offences and contraventions of civil penalty provisions under the Corporations Act 2001 and intended to support ethical whistleblowing, deter white collar crime, and make employers accountable for safeguarding qualified whistleblowers.
ASIC encourages companies to have arrangements in place for handling any whistleblower reports they may receive, but only certain companies are required to have a formal whistleblower policy. The Corporations Act mandates the implementation and publication of a whistleblower policy for public corporations, significant proprietary businesses, and trustees of registrable superannuation institutions.
Using EthicsPro®, Report It Now® Australia verifies that your organisation complies with the Corporations Act’s whistleblowing requirements.
Report It Now® Australia ensures that it adheres to the respective Public Interest Disclosure Acts in different States. Click below to see what the Public Interest Disclosure Act entails in the State that you are in.

This Policy sets out how we collect, store, use and share your personal information, and how we comply with our obligations under The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act).
Personal information includes any information that can identify you as an individual. You have the choice not to provide us with your personal information (other than as required by law). However, this may result in us being unable to provide you with some or all of our services or may substantially reduce the level of service we are able to provide to you, and/or reduce the areas of our website that you will be able to access.
When using our reporting services such as our case management system EthicsPro® (Reporting Services), no personal information is automatically collected from you. Personal information is only collected and stored when you voluntarily give such information to us.
We collect personal information as part of our ordinary business operations and through our Reporting Services. Personal information that we collect from you or about you where you have been named through our Reporting Services may include:
We collect personal information from you when you interact with us, or we interact with you. The personal information we collect will depend on the nature and purpose of the interaction with us. We will generally collect your personal information when you:

Examples of where we collect personal information about you from third parties include:
We may need to share your personal information with third parties from time to time. We will only share personal information with third parties where we are permitted under this Policy, where you have specifically authorised us to do so, as part of the Reporting Services and other services we are providing or where we are permitted or required to in accordance with applicable law.

Where we are sharing your personal information with third parties, other than the police or regulatory authorities, we will use reasonable endeavours to require the third party to maintain confidentiality of your personal information.
If we are sharing your personal information with a third party that is not located in Australia, a data storage provider, or otherwise subject to The Privacy Act, we shall ensure that such entities are subject to similar levels of privacy protection as Australia, alternatively, we will require the third party to protect your personal information in a way that provides comparable safeguards to those in The Privacy Act.
