Summary of Changes/Comments
May 11, 2018 - The updated Protection against Retaliation policy is in line with the latest Secretariat guidelines ST/SGB/2017/2/Rev1 and includes: protection of individuals who choose to report wrongdoing to an external entity in limited circumstances; reducing the turnaround time for Ethics to complete the preliminary review stage (from 45 to 30 days); changing the definition of retaliation so that it aligns with the most recent SGB; the option of recommending transfer of the alleged retaliator; and explicitly prohibiting retaliation against outside parties. Additionally, UNDP introduced the possibility of interim protective measures during the preliminary review stage.
 

In July 2012, this Policy was expanded to include protection for non-staff personnel such as contractors, interns and UNVs serving in UNDP or another UNDP administered fund, programme or agency.​ <br>
In 2015, the procedure has been added (No text change in the policy document).
