A whistle-blower is entitled to report:

inaction, negligence or professional misconduct by employees of the Bank;
tax evasion;
threats to public health;
construction safety risks;
environmental safety risks;
occupational health and safety risks;
threats to public order;
violation of human rights;
violations in the financial and capital markets sector (such as violations of: the Law on Prevention of Money Laundering, Financing and Proliferation of Terrorism; sanctions risk regulations; investment service protection requirements);
violations of competition law;
failure to comply with other regulations.

A report on the infringement of personal interests does not constitute whistle-blowing.

To report a violation, a whistle-blower fills out the Whistle-blowing report form, providing clear, weighed and sufficiently detailed information. If a whistle-blower suffers unfavourable consequences, they are entitled to protections under the Whistle-blowing Law.

Whistle-blowers are free to report violations outside the Bank, by contacting competent state authorities, organisations or associations, as well as via the official whistle-blowing contact point – the State Chancellery of the Republic of Latvia.


Internal channel of the Bank

The Bank encourages you to blow the whistle using an internal channel by e-mailing [email protected] or sending a letter to the Bank’s address (Brīvības iela 54, Rīga, LV-1011) bearing the text “Whistle-blower’s report” to facilitate timely remediation of a possible violation before the Bank’s reputation is compromised, losses are sustained, or competent state authorities intervene in the matter.
