Deloitte Société d'Avocats experts offer support for setting up the alert system, assistance in reading and processing the alerts received, and support in the conduct of internal investigations following the receipt of the alert.

Since the entry into force of the Sapin II law, companies with consolidated or unincorporated turnover of more than 100 million euros, employing at least 500 employees directly or indirectly through a group whose workforce exceeds 500 employees and whose mother house is headquartered in France, have the obligation to set up a system for preventing and detecting corruption through the design and implementation internally of an anti-corruption compliance program, effective and adapted to their operational realities. This program, re-evaluated and regularly updated, must include the introduction of an ethical alert system. This obligation is applicable since 1 January 2018.
