Whistleblower system

Reporting office for the reporting of misconduct and legal violations


The strict observance of law and order is an indispensable part of the corporate culture of the Niedax Group.

In order to be able to uncover potential misconduct and legal violations as quickly as possible and avert them at an early stage, the Niedax Group has implemented a reporting office.  This can be used in particular for tips and reports in accordance with the EU Whistleblower Directive, the German Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) and the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LKSG).

Tips can be submitted in person, by telephone, in writing or in text form (e.g. by letter or e-mail) to the internal whistleblower officer:

Lars Ziegenhagen
- Reporting Officer -
Niedax GmbH & Co. KG
Asbacher Straße 141
53545 Linz am Rhein
Email: compliance@niedax-group.com
Telephone: +49 2644 5606 -777

Online reporting channel: https://niedax.hintbox.de

In order to guarantee confidential processing of tips by letter, we ask you to prefix "CONFIDENTIAL Niedax tips" in the address field.

The protection of whistleblowers is our top priority

With the reporting office provided by us, we ensure that all legal requirements for the protection of whistleblowers are implemented and respected.

We are committed to protecting whistleblowers from being discriminated against or punished for making a report, and to not tolerating and consistently pursuing retaliation or reprisals.

We also grant confidentiality to all whistleblowers and assure them of the impartiality of the whistleblower. All reports of violations or suspicions can be made anonymously at any time.

External Reporting Office of the Federal Government

In addition to internal reporting, the HinschG provides for the possibility of external reporting. For this purpose, the Federal Government has set up the External Federal Reporting Office at the Federal Office of Justice (BfJ). The reporting channels and further information on the BfJ's external reporting office are published on the BfJ's website.

In addition to the external reporting office of the Federal Government at the BfJ, the existing reporting systems at the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and the Federal Cartel Office will be continued for their specific area of responsibility. Further information on this can be found on the websites of these reporting offices/whistleblowers:



Information on procedures for reporting to bodies of the European Union (EU)

In addition to information on external reporting procedures under the HinSchG, the following links provide information on procedures for reporting to EU institutions, bodies or other entities. These include external reporting channels of the Commission, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
