EY/Ethics Hotline

The EY/Ethics Hotline is a method for reporting conduct that may be unethical, illegal, in violation of professional standards, or otherwise inconsistent with the EY Global Code of Conduct. The hotline may be used for whistleblowing and whistleblowers.

Before contacting EY/Ethics, we encourage you to consider whether or not you can directly raise your concern with someone at EY.

If you do not feel comfortable doing so, or do not know whom to contact, you can make a report to EY using the EY/Ethics Hotline (online or by telephone), which also includes information about how EY will respond to your report.

Your web-based report will be routed initially to EthicsPoint, an independent third-party host for the EY/Ethics Hotline. It will then be promptly forwarded by EthicsPoint to the appropriate Quality & Risk Management personnel or internal legal counsel at EY for review and investigation. Calls to EY/Ethics may be answered by EthicsPoint or by EY hotline personnel, depending on the country of contact.


The EY/Ethics Hotline is also the local channel report, in accordance with Law 93/2021, dated 20 December transposing the European Whistleblower Protection Directive, and you can report concerning the following categories:

  • public procurement
  • financial services, products and markets, and prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing
  • product safety and compliance
  • transport safety
  • protection of the environment
  • radiation protection and nuclear safety
  • food and feed safety, animal health and welfare
  • public health
  • consumer protection
  • protection of privacy and personal data, and security of network and information systems
