The Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (OPAZ) issued a decision approving its policy of whistleblowing and whistleblower protection by opening an official communication channel on its website, which serves protecting the whistleblowers and ensures confidentiality.
By establishing this policy, OPAZ aims to preserve its positive image and good reputation, as well as improves the quality of its services and promoting transparency, integrity, impartiality and fairness. This also reflects its keenness to apply best practices in preserving its assets and raising the performance efficiency by informing employees and all those dealing with OPAZ to report any committed violations or wrong practices that are in violation of the laws, regulations and systems in force in OPAZ. Accordingly, this policy guarantees confidence, protection and confidentiality of the whistleblower.
The policy stipulates that the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (OPAZ) adheres to the highest standards of integrity and best practices in delivering its responsibilities and business, which are considered a basis for success and building a good reputation by reporting unprincipled or illegal work practices.
