Who can Report?

Anyone can report to WBSC in violation or where there is probable cause to believe a breach has occurred in any integrity matters of our sport. Whether this report deemed to be associated with serious crime or not, it will provide protection against any unjustified treatment in the form of providing confidential advice to whistleblowers so long as there is an honest and reasonable belief of wrongdoing.

Report person may choose to file the complaint anonymously, however there may be some difficulties of obtaining evidence to authenticate the improper activity before the commence of the investigation.

All matters pertaining to an alleged incident, personal information of the concerned persons, other information gathered during investigations and results of investigations (“Confidential Information”) will be regarded as confidential.

What can be reported?

Any form of fraud, corruption, violation of WBSC By-Laws, Rules and Policies are completely incompatible with the intrinsic values of our sport. Within WBSC, there is zero tolerance for such improper activities.

The report contains the following information:

  • WHAT improper activity occurred?
  • WHO committed the activity?
  • WHEN did it occur?
  • WHERE did it happen?
  • HOW did it happen?
  • ANY other parties involved?
  • EVIDENCE section

The report can be received in any forms, such as email, document, recording and photos. Official Reporting Forms can also be found below for anyone in need. The report requires as much evidence as possible to authenticate the allegation(s) such as witnesses, documents and other relevant and specific advisement.

Where can it be reported to?


  • The IOC Integrity Hotline is also accessible for anyone at any time to confidentially and anonymously report any suspicious actions that have come to your attention.

How will the report be processed?

The WBSC Integrity Unit is responsible for documenting all reports and to determine whether a follow-up is warranted. The Integrity Unit will then recommend whether a case should be submitted to a third party such as a lawyer or the police or if local authorities need to be notified to pursue local law. For clarity, the local authorities are responsible for determining whether to conduct a criminal investigation in relation to an alleged incident. All reports will be made under the guarantee of confidentiality.

Further details of the procedure can be found as appendix to the rules and policy regarding each topic.
