FCC GROUP WHISTLEBLOWING CHANNEL
FCC provides its stakeholders with a confidential channel for submitting complaints about possible breaches of the FCC Group's Code of Ethics and Conduct or its Criminal Prevention Model and about the objective scope of EU Directive 2019/1937 on whistleblower protection and that determined by the respective national laws implementing it.
Communications, which may be nominal or anonymous, will be treated with due confidentiality and diligence, without fear of any kind of reprisal and respecting the processing of personal data in accordance with current legislation.
Communications will be previously analysed and, where appropriate, processed in accordance with the FCC Group's Compliance Model. The Model has a regulatory block consisting of policies (see https://www.fcc.es/en/normativa) and procedures that establish the expected conduct and actions, as well as the protocols for managing the Whistleblowing Channel and conducting the relevant investigations.
The following channels are available for reporting any possible infringement of the Code of Ethics and Conduct or the regulations that develop it:
