On October 14, 2010, the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) adopted a series of amendments modifying and broadening the scope of its single authorization AU-004 on whistleblowing hotlines. The purpose of this revision was driven by two specific needs. On the one hand, the revised single authorization broadens the scope of whistleblowing hotlines in response to the need expressed by companies to comply with corporate and anti-trust laws. On the other hand, it interprets more narrowly the conditions that apply to whistleblowing hotlines in line with a decision of the French Court of Cassation, which ruled that such schemes must necessarily be limited in their scope.
