“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”.
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 que puede consultar en el apartado de
normativa y otra documentación.
Con carácter previo a la eventual remisión de información puede usted plantear a dicho Servicio, a través de la siguiente dirección de correo electrónico (firstname.lastname@example.org), las cuestiones que estime oportunas en relación con la forma y requisitos con los que la información debe ser remitida, el tratamiento que se dará a la misma, y, en general, cualquier aspecto relativo a la remisión de información a través del presente canal de comunicación.
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.
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.
Likewise, when the National Anti-Fraud Coordination Service has to transfer the proceedings to other bodies so that they can process the corresponding procedures, the provisions of the previous paragraph shall apply to the documentation that is sent to these other bodies, except in the case of jurisdictional bodies or the Public Prosecutor's Office, or if the regulations governing the judicial procedure require otherwise. In the latter case, the identity of the informant shall be communicated only to the persons or bodies for whom it is essential.
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.
Sending information through this communication channel does not grant the informant the status of interested party in the administrative actions that may result from the information provided, nor does it give them the right to be informed of their results, nor grounds to file appeals or claims related to the results of said actions..
