Whistleblower scheme

On this page, you will find information on the whistleblower scheme in the Danish Gambling Authority. You can use the whistleblower scheme to call attention to illegal or criticizable matters in the Danish Gambling Authority. 

If you have a suspicion about tax fraud, moonlighting or illegal labour, you must contact the Danish Tax Agency, because these matters cannot be processed in the whistleblower scheme. If you want to report gambling operators’ potential breaches of the Anti-Money Laundering Act, you must use the external whistleblower scheme about money laundering.  

Who can report to the scheme?

The following persons can make a report to the Danish Gambling Authority’s whistleblower scheme:

  • Employees at the Danish Gambling Authority. This covers both fulltime and parttime employees, employees with fixed-term employment contracts and temporary workers. It also covers voluntary workers and paid and unpaid trainees. 
  • Former employees at the Danish Gambling Authority, who report information which they have obtained during the employment. 
  • Persons who have not yet  started working with the Danish Gambling Authority, but who report information obtained in connection with the employment process or other negotiations prior to the employment.
  • Business partners with whom the Danish Gambling Authority cooperate on a regular basis or in a formalised manner. For example, persons who work under supervision and management of contracting parties, subcontractors, and suppliers. 

Persons who are not covered by the above group of people cannot report to the whistleblower scheme. Reports from persons outside this group of people will in principle be declined. 

If your report concerns matters in the Tax Administration (The Danish Tax Agency, the Danish Customs Agency, the Danish Motor Vehicle Agency, the Danish Debt Collection Agency, the Danish Property Assessment Agency, the IT and Development Agency or the Administration and Services Agency), the Tax Appeals Agency,  or the Department of the Ministry of Taxation you must contact the whistleblower scheme in the relevant authority.
