Public Interest Disclosures
Public interest disclosures used to be known as protected disclosures or whistleblowing.
A public interest disclosure is a disclosure made in line with the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (this act replaced the Protected Disclosure Act 2012).
Murray Valley Wine Grape Industry Development Committee (MVWG) is not a public body prescribed under the Act to receive a public interest disclosure, so disclosures about MVWG, its contractors, officers or members must be made directly to the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC):
Address: IBAC, GPO Box 24234, Melbourne Victoria 3001
Phone: 1300 735 135
Although MVWG is not able to receive disclosures we have procedures in place as required under section 58 of the Act, setting out how we will protect people against detrimental action that might be taken against them in reprisal for making a public interest disclosure or cooperating in an investigation into a public interest disclosure complaint.
