Whistle-blowing is a right as well as duty for members, but there is a protocol to follow. Whistle-blowing is to alert - somebody with authority to do something about the information - on suspected or known things that need correction. Ie violation of laws and regulations, by-laws or serious breach of common culture or ethical guidelines. The violation may apply to both personal behavior or organizational overruns made within the framework of the association. SM Bergen encourages everyone to notify us in such circumstances as early as possible because it may be beneficial for the implicated to clean up and put things right as early as possible. SM Bergen has nothing to gain by keeping such issues hidden in the organization. The whistle-blower shall not receive reprisals for this. Notice must be made in writing to the board or chairman via email or PM.
