The Law No. 2016-1691 of December 9th, 2016, also known as Loi Sapin 2, relates to the transparency, fight against corruption and modernization of economic life. The law set up professional warning systems, notably by defining whistle blowers and giving them legal protection. Said law applies to all companies that have more than 50 employees. Following the adoption of this system, the CNIL (Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés) updated the AU-004 again by a decision on June 22, 2017 to take note of this law, which aims to regulate the management of these data and treatments.
