Senior staff, including compliance officers, should develop an open-culture environment that supports the reporting of concerns.

  • the professional and regulatory obligations on individuals to raise concerns about the actions of their practice in certain situations;
  • the importance of the roles of COLPs and COFAs; and
  • considerations for practices in developing a whistleblowing policy.
