Compliance and Ethics at PENTAX Medical
PENTAX Medical’s compliance program expects all colleagues to take ownership of our compliance practices and training and represents a shared undertaking on the part of colleagues ranging from the highest levels of management to the most junior employees. All colleagues are expected to take ownership of compliance and to perform all tasks with integrity.
PENTAX Medical Code of Conduct
As a division of Hoya Group, PENTAX Medical complies with the HOYA Code of Conduct which summarizes our commitment to lawful and ethical conduct wherever we do business. The Code reinforces the principles that are fundamental to PENTAX Medical’s culture, vision, and values – and how we do business every day.
This Code reiterates the key elements of many of our company policies and provides helpful examples and FAQs for certain situations. However, there is no substitute for good judgment and most importantly, we ask all of our employees to reach out to their manager, Human Resources, Compliance or Legal department with any questions.
The Code applies to:
- Every employee, at every level of PENTAX Medical. We are responsible for reading, understanding, and respecting the Code.
- Temporary staff and onsite contract workers, who work for the company, while not directly employed by the company.
Our Code strictly expresses that we should:
- Never violate the Code, even if asked to do so by a manager or another employee.
- Sacrifice profit if it means violating the Code.
- Not allow the improper practices of other companies to influence our commitment to the Code.
As a division of Hoya, the Hoya HelpLine is available to all PENTAX Medical employees, customers and business partners to report a concern or a potential violation of law or company policy. Anyone contacting the Hoya HelpLine can remain anonymous in the US, Canada and Latin America and wherever else available and permitted by law. The Hoya HelpLine can be reached by phone or online via the web-reporting tool. This resource is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offered in multiple languages. The Hoya HelpLine is operated by specially trained third-party representatives who are independent from Hoya or any division of Hoya. PENTAX Medical has a non-retaliation policy and will not allow retaliation against anymore who, in good faith, raises a compliance concern or integrity issue.
