This page is used to submit notifications within the internal notification system of KERN s.r.o. on the basis of Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report violations of Union law, and subsequent Act No. 171/2023 Coll., on the protection of whistleblowers.

The primary goal is to ensure the protection of the whistleblower from any punishment, discrimination or possible retaliatory measures, whether they are employees or other persons in a legally defined relationship with the organization (they are listed in § 2 of the Act on the Protection of Whistleblowers).

The form can also be filled out anonymously, but the act on the protection of whistleblowers requires the notification to include the name, surname and date of birth, or other data from which it is possible to prove the identity of the whistleblower (e.g. any unique employee or registration number). If the whistleblower's identity is not established, he may not be afforded the statutory level of whistleblower protection.

All notifications made via the form will be forwarded exclusively to the appropriate person who meets the requirements of the Act on the Protection of Whistleblowers (in particular, the provisions of § 10 of this Act). This person subsequently informs the notifier of the receipt of the notification and also of the results of the assessment of its reasonableness. Furthermore, the whistleblower is also informed about the adoption of appropriate measures to correct or prevent the illegal situation.

If you wish to notify the relevant person in person, you can request this via the form.


As an alternative to the internal notification system, you can use the external notification system operated by the Ministry of Justice:
Notification to the Ministry of Justice can be made verbally or in writing. More information can be found here:

The reporting person should be satisfied that the facts reported are true in view of the relevant factors and available information. Knowingly reporting false facts may be sanctioned. It should also act in the public interest, in good faith and according to its best knowledge and conscience.

The whistleblower should be able to determine the identity of the wrongdoing area and think about what verifiable information he can provide about the reported wrongdoing. The nature and scope of the information presented can have a positive effect on the way the notification is investigated. The notification must be in an understandable and clear form, and it must be clear from it which person it is directed against and which action it concerns.

For an effective investigation of the notification, it is advisable to provide a phone number or an email, which can be used to communicate anonymously with the notifier. Without the ability to contact the whistleblower, it can be difficult to resolve the report.

Jakub Ľalík, Ing., will deal with the resolution of your notification.
