As the market leader worldwide, Fresenius Medical Care is aware of our responsibility to ourselves and our stakeholders, and we take it seriously. Our company is committed to complying with local laws and regulations that apply to our business. We seek to demonstrate professionalism, honesty and integrity in our business relationships with patients, customers, suppliers, the government and other payors, as well as fellow employees, investors and the general public.
Based on Fresenius Medical Care’s code of conduct, we have implemented within all of our business regions corresponding codes, which include the same compliance standards and address in their provisions the specific requirements of local laws. A copy of Fresenius Medical Care North America’s Code of Business Conduct is downloadable below under “General compliance documents.”
Each of our employees is included in our compliance program. Effectively engaging them on a regular basis involves periodic training and internal communication.
The compliance program incorporates regional distinctions and Fresenius Medical Care periodically reviews and modifies the program to confirm that its content and implementation procedures are in line with industry standards and local legal requirements.
Additionally, Fresenius Medical Care has implemented business ethics and principles for business partners that outline the principles for all third parties acting on behalf of Fresenius Medical Care. The emphasis is on environmentally sound and resource-efficient production as well as fair and humane working conditions on the part of our suppliers.
