Scania whistleblowing system

Integrity and compliance with laws and regulations as well as the principles laid down in the Scania Code of Conduct, Scania Supplier Code of Conduct, Scania Code of Practice and Scania Independent Distributor Code of Conduct are top priorities and cornerstones of our corporate culture. 

To meet these values and to avoid or minimize potential risks due to regulatory violations, it is crucial that potential regulatory violations by employees or external partners are identified at an early stage, clarified, and stopped, and that disciplinary measures are applied where necessary.


To encourage a speak-up culture and to detect potential wrongdoings, the TRATON GROUP operates a global independent, impartial, and confidential whistleblowing system managed  in collaboration between Scania Corporate Investigation Office and the TRATON Investigation Office.  Besides the Scania Corporate Investigation Office as the first contact point for whistleblowers at Scania, the TRATON Investigation Office also can be addressed as central point of contact for all brands within the TRATON Group.


The Scania whistleblowing system and procedures for conducting internal investigations are governed by Scania Group Policy 20. Our whistleblowing system is based on fundamental principles such as the protection of whistleblowers and individuals  supporting the investigation. We respect whistleblowers’ right to confidentiality, and we uphold the presumption of innocence and fairness of investigations towards any persons concerned. Information received via the whistleblowing system will be reviewed fairly, promptly, and in a sensitive manner and will be treated with the highest level of confidentiality.  No actions are taken to identify anonymous whistleblowers. We have zero tolerance for retaliation against whistleblowers. However, any report in bad faith will be treated as serious regulatory violations.


Dedicated functions at Scania within Governance, Risk & Compliance, Security, Audit, Legal and People and Culture support the investigations. An investigation is only initiated after a careful examination of the facts and reasonable suspicion of a regulatory violation. Scania departments involved in whistleblowing and internal investigations work closely with colleagues at the TRATON Investigation Office, especially regarding potential serious regulatory violations.



Our whistleblowing channels

Our whistleblowing system provides the following channels to report potential violations committed by employees or external partners to enable a fast investigation and appropriate reaction by our Company. However, that does not limit legally protected rights to contact relevant authorities. 


At all times and in all languages, internal and external whistleblowers can report potential regulatory violations or risks related human rights or environmental obligations directly and confidentially to colleagues at the Scania Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office:


Scania CV AB

Scania Corporate Investigation Office 

Vagnmakarvägen 1

151 32 Södertälje, Sweden





Investigation Office

Dachauer Strasse 641

80995 Munich, Germany




The relevant teams are available to talk to you in person, on the phone, or via email.




Whistleblowers always have the possibility to address  their concerns to the following internal functions:

  • Direct manager
  • People and Culture/Human Resources function (local or central)
  • Group Internal Audit
  • Corporate Security
  • Group Compliance
  • Locally or regionally designated contact person for most of our legal entities based in the EU. 


The receiving function will then forward the information to the dedicated whistleblowing functions, as set out in our internal procedures.




Whistleblowers worldwide can use the TRATON Speak up! tool, which is available around the clock in several languages to report hints on potential violations regarding white-collar crime such as corruption or antitrust law, data protection issues as well as risks and violations regarding human rights and environmental obligations, or other internal and statutory regulations.


Whistleblowers can register on Speak up! with their name or stay anonymous. All hints are treated as confidential. Even if their preferred language is not offered in the reporting channel, whistleblowers can use any language to submit their report. Our whistleblowing portal is operated by a third-party, who is hosting the portal on external, certified servers (located in Germany) allowing whistleblowers to address hints to us on an anonymous, non-traceable basis.


Speak up! is accessible from every Internet-enabled computer. Click here.




Regulatory violations can also be reported via the 24/7 Whistleblower Hotline provided by Volkswagen AG. The hotline is available around the clock and accepts hints from all Brands of the Volkswagen Group — if desired also anonymously. All hints concerning our Company that are received via the hotline are forwarded to the TRATON Investigation Office directly.

This is how you can reach the whistleblower hotline:

We encourage reporting of misconduct via the internal reporting channels as described above. However, in view of the EU Whistleblowing Directive, EU member states have defined (or will soon define) designated authorities that also accepts reports on misconduct as external reporting channels. Check on the following countries you are reporting from the following link.  



How do we process your report?

At our Company, hints regarding potential regulatory violations can be reported by employees, customers, and other third parties through various channels, at any time, and in any language. Hints are then received by the Scania Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office  which ensure that thorough and appropriate investigations are carried out in a confidential and timely manner.


The qualified and experienced colleagues at the Scania Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office  examine every report on potential misconduct thoroughly and follow the process according to the applicable Group Policy systematically. First, whistleblowers will get a confirmation of receipt from the Scania Investigation Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office, which will then assess your report for potential legal risks. This includes clarifying questions about the reported matter and gathering available facts particularly from the whistleblowers. If this initial evaluation shows grounds for suspicion of a serious violation, an investigation by a dedicated investigating unit within Scania will be started. Afterwards, the results of the investigation will be legally assessed by the TRATON Investigation Office and appropriate measures will be recommended. If the hint points to a less serious regulatory violation, the case may be handed over to a suitable body within Scania to investigate and assess on their own, but with the chance to receive guidance from the Scania Corporate Investigation Office. Whistleblowers or involved employees can always contact the Scania Corporate Investigation Office or the TRATON Investigation Office about the status and the outcome of the procedure. The outcome will also be shared as far as legally possible considering the need-to-know-principle. However, the processing time varies depending on the subject of the procedure. 


Potential violations of the Scania Supplier Code of Conduct and Scania Independent Distributor Code of Conduct by suppliers and other third parties, including risks and violations regarding human rights and environmental obligations, can also be reported to the Scania Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office. The Scania Corporate Investigation Office or TRATON Investigation Office  will inform the responsible departments, who will process the reported matter accordingly. This particularly includes taking the necessary measures to minimize or end violations and/or risks.
