Disclosures – Scottish and Northern Ireland (S&NI) banknote regime

Whistleblowing is when an employee reports suspected wrongdoing at work. When a disclosure is made to the regulator, this is officially referred to as ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’. An employee can report things that are not right, are illegal or if anyone at work is neglecting their duties, including:

  • someone’s health and safety is in danger;
  • damage to the environment;
  • a criminal offence;
  • the company is not obeying the law; and/or
  • covering up wrongdoing.
The Bank encourages employees of the S&NI authorised banks and their approved agents to first use the whistleblowing procedures available in their workplace. If there are not any or if they do not feel able to do so, they can contact the Bank on 020 3461 8703 during office hours. Alternatively, they can e-mail the Bank on S& or write at:

Bank of England
20 Moorgate
London EC2R 6DA

Disclosures made to the Bank will be dealt with by a dedicated whistleblowing function within the Bank’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA).
