Reporting events which constitute fraud or irregularity that affect European Union funds to the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service.

“If you would like to make the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service aware of actions that may constitute fraud or irregularity in relation to projects or operations financed by funds from the European Union, you can use the channel created for said purpose by the Service, which you can find at the following link”.

Access to the form for reporting fraud and irregularities

 

The main features of this reporting channel are contained in Communication 1/2017, of 6 April, of the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service, which can be consulted at this link:

Communication 1/2017, of 6 April, on the method to be followed by individuals aware of events that may be interpreted as fraud or irregularities in terms or projects or operations financed in full or in part by funds from the European Union.

Analysis of the information received

The National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service will analyse the information it receives in order to determine how it should be treated, performing any necessary verifications and actions.

However, the information received will not lead to further action if it is demonstrably unfounded or when the scarcity of the information received, an excessively generic or vague description of the facts, or a lack of proof submitted do not allow the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service to carry out a reasonable verification of the information received and make a minimum determination of how it should be treated, in addition to the rest of the cases set out in Communication 1/2017 of 6 April.

Guarantee of confidentiality

Except when the person reporting the information expressly requests otherwise, the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service will maintain total confidentiality with regard to their identity, such that it will not be revealed to anyone.

To that end, in all communications, verification activities, or requests for documentation carried out by the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service, the details regarding the identity of the person who reported the information will be omitted, as will any other data that could be used partially or in full to identify them.

Lastly, and to the extent that the rules regulating the corresponding procedure allow, it will be the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service itself that carries out the necessary procedures before the body to which the actions were transferred so the proceedings may continue, so that, as applicable, the communication between said body and the person who sent information to the Service will be carried out through the Service, so as to guarantee the confidentiality of the person's identity.
