What is the Point of Contact for Fair Competition?

The Point of Contact for Fair Competition is a central point where you as a citizen, a company or an organisation can file a report if you suspect that a citizen or a company is committing social fraud. There is a secure access especially for professional users, such as employers’ and workers’ organisations, social service departments, cities and municipalities, and other public institutions.

The reports will be passed on to the competent services in order to ascertain whether the legislation, which they need to monitor, has been infringed.

The Point of Contact also registers reports from whistleblowers. In accordance with the Whistleblowers Act and its implementing decree, the Social Information and Investigation Service or SIOD New window (Sociale Inlichtingen- en Opsporingsdienst in Dutch) is the competent body to receive those whistleblower reports in the fight against social fraud. Please read our page on your protection as a whistleblower for more information.

What kind of reports can you file here?

You can report the following cases:

  • Unfair competition/social dumping
  • Problems with your wages, working hours and annual leave
  • Undeclared work
  • Benefit fraud due to undeclared cohabitation/relocation
  • Issues concerning well-being at work
  • Work-related discrimination
  • Economic exploitation/human trafficking
  • Child benefits fraud
  • Fraud in the (manual) carwash sector
  • Corona fraud, such as abuse of the temporary unemployment or bridging right systems

No anonymous reports

Anonymous reports will not be investigated. The use of a false identity is a crime. When you report something, you must identify yourself as follows:

  • Individual citizen: with your name, national register number and e-mail address
  • Company: with your company number and e-mail address
  • Authorised professional partner: with your electronic identity card and e-mail address

Your identity is protected

The social inspectors may not disclose your identity to anyone – not even in court – unless you explicitly give your consent. They are not allowed to inform an employer or his representative of the fact that your report was at the basis of their investigation either.
