Based on the information obtained, BDO will assess whether the concern is justified. It shall describe its conclusions and include them in the file. The conclusions of the assessment will be communicated in an anonymised form to the responsible persons at BDO, together with any suggestions for correcting the identified deficiencies or mitigating the identified risks.
The notifier will be informed of the outcome of the investigation within 30 days of the notification. In complex cases, this period may be extended by 30 days, up to a maximum of twice. The notifier will be informed of any extension.
The notifier may be informed of the outcome of the investigation in two ways:
- Anonymously, using a unique code, if you use our Ethics Line to file a report.
- Directly, if you choose another method of concern (email, phone) and leave us your contact details
