  • Slovakia: Is there a need to adapt the existing legal provisions in order to implement the Directive "in conformity"?
  • Austria: when can the final law be expected?
  • Extended scope of national laws or merely implementation of minimum requirements?
  • Anonymity, reporting within the group - how are these practice-relevant issues dealt with by the legislators?
  • Whistleblowing authority: independency necessary?
  • Conclusion and outlook
