Our solid corporate culture of compliant conduct is based on the Code of Conduct of the publicly listed company SALUS, Ljubljana, d.d. and the Salus Group.
The Code of Conduct emphasizes a zero tolerance policy towards bribery and other acts of individuals or companies that could have a negative impact on the reputation of the Salus Group or which are inadmissible from the legal, moral or ethical point of view and defines the basic principles of acceptable conduct both for the employees as well as for service providers.
For more than half a century, one of our main guidelines has been maintenance of a long tradition of personal and business integrity, pursuit of the highest moral and ethical standards and compliance with the legislation, other regulations, internal acts, as well as international and national codes of the pharmaceutical industry and medical devices industry.
The Corporate Compliance for both the Salus Group as a whole as well as for each of the companies in the group is one of the key principles of operation and forms one of the basic principles of Quality Policy. Conducting business in accordance with the legislation, the highest ethical standards of pharmaceutical industry and the medical devices industry and industry associations (EFPIA, MedTech) is essential to the Salus Group that represents a vital link in the supply of medicinal products, medical devices and quality and innovative services that provide health and well-being of people.
Throughout our more than half a century presence on the market, our tradition of business and personal integrity has convinced many reputable international pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers of medical devices and recognised manufacturers of innovative and orphan medicinal products that have been collaborating with us for years.
We are fully aware of the responsibility that we have to all stakeholders, with which we cooperate in conducting business, or that are affected by our business operations, imposed on us through our mission and operation in a specific, extremely demanding business environment.
We therefore devote a lot of energy to the establishment, monitoring and continuous upgrading of an effective compliance programme, as recommended by the U.S. Department of Justice.
