Legal information on the use of the internal whistleblowing system

bc GmbH has implemented an internal whistleblower system to detect and prevent violations of applicable law as well as company policies based on the EU Directive 2019/1937 on the protection of persons who report a violation of Union law.

As a matter of principle, reporting via the whistleblower system should only be the last of all possible communication channels. Priority should always be given to the direct route to the manager or the HR department, or for business partners and external whistleblowers, to the contact person in the company or the management. If this is not possible for valid reasons, the reporting system is another option for reporting violations or misconduct.

The reporting system was set up by CYBERLEGIS RA-GmbH for bc GmbH and is also maintained by the law firm. All employees of the law firm are bound to professional secrecy and do not work according to instructions. Employees who are not bound to secrecy by professional law are contractually bound to secrecy.

This reporting system is available to employees, customers, suppliers and business partners. Reports can be made in writing or verbally:

Phone: +49 (0)89 2441760 76


By mail: CYBERLEGIS RA-GmbH, Whistleblowing, Maximilianstraße 13, 80539 Munich, Germany

bc GmbH has no access to these reports. In the first step, the reports are processed exclusively by CYBERLEGIS RA-GmbH.
