Based on our corporate philosophy, "Contributing to society by understanding the medicine of today to create the medicine of tomorrow", we strive to build good relationships with the many stakeholders that surround us. Needless to say, this starts with ensuring that each of our employees strictly obeys the law and regulations, as well as company rules, and acts in a way that respects social norms and follows corporate ethics. In other words, thorough "compliance" is essential.
We have worked to increase compliance awareness by establishing company rules and committees, and by creating systems related to compliance based on the preparation of rule manuals.
As a link in this endeavor, we have prepared the "Daiken Medical Action Charter", which contains key points that each employee is to particularly bear in mind. This charter stipulates points of action that all employees, regardless of rank or job description, are to undertake.
Using this action charter as a guide for the daily work of all employees, we strive to spread compliance awareness so that each employee acts in a conscientious and responsible manner, as both a Daiken Medical employee and a member of society.
The Compliance Promotion Committee works to ensure that all employees understand the contents of the "Daiken Medical Action Charter" and the "Standards of Employee Behavior" and use these as guidelines for their daily work. The aim of the committee is to heighten compliance awareness and prevent and mitigate risk.
We have established an office where employees can ask questions about compliance and report problems, and we have also set up a "Help Line" to enable an early response to potential risks of non-compliance with laws, regulations, and company rules. Callers are protected so that no one suffers harmful treatment due to having consulted the Help Line.
