Fraud report

Whistleblowing: Report a suspicion/concern

Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme follows a zero-tolerance policy towards fraud. To fight fraudulent behaviour, the Programme offers a large set of rules. One of them is whistleblower procedure, i.e. reporting of concerns/suspicious situations by individuals who came across certain situations.

Submitting your concern

If you have a concern that you would like to bring to our attention, you can do so by submitting the information via the following online form “Report on suspected or established fraud” and possible attachments documenting the situation.

This reporting covers:

  • The cases related to the projects co-financed from the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme
  • Compliance breach / internal cases within the IB.SH Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein (Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme).

Cases or behaviour that are not related to the above-mentioned points are not within the responsibility of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme with IB.SH as the Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat and will not be further evaluated. Please also note that this whistleblowing system is not an entry channel for complaints regarding the MA/JS (IB.SH) services. If you have any suggestions or are dissatisfied, please use the contact form of IB.SH (
