Issues and Initiatives Going Forward
In order to implement our policies as effectively as possible in line with the situation in each country, and to ensure that they are followed, we are continually developing individual standard operating procedures for each country. We have implemented a comprehensive monitoring program to evaluate adherence with our policies and procedures in the conduct of our high risk business activities. Going forward, we will take further measures to ensure compliance, for example implementing a compliance-related risk assessment to ensure we continue to build a best-in-class and sustainable compliance program that puts the patient at the center of everything we do.
