  • Independence or Conflicts of Interest
  • Integrity of Financial Reporting, Accounting, Internal Controls
  • Bribery, Corruption, Money Laundering, Fraud or other Illegal Acts
  • Information Security or Privacy
  • Ethics and Public Interest
  • Discrimination, Bullying, Intimidation, Harassment, Victimisation or other inappropriate behaviour 
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

A more detailed description of the aforementioned categories will be available on the ClearView Connects system when you file a report.

Any abuse of the KPMG International hotline may result in action being taken against the perpetrators of the abuse.
