Policy on Global Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption

Background

Astellas is committed to conducting its business throughout the world with integrity, the highest ethical standards, and in compliance with applicable anti-bribery/anti-corruption (“ABAC”) laws, rules, regulations, codes and guidelines.

What constitutes bribery may vary from country to country. Many ABAC laws apply beyond the territorial boundaries of the country where they were created. Some ABAC laws prohibit bribery not only of government officials but also apply to non-government employees.

Astellas ensures that a consistently high and ethical standard is applied to interactions with government officials, government organizations, health care professionals and health care institutions across the globe.
