Our global policies

To give effect to our Global Policies all Senior Executive Team (SET) areas, including MedImmune, are expected to follow any global standards and procedures or, provided they are consistent with the Global Policy, their own local or functional standards and procedures.

Because many of the Global Policies are directed at specific functional areas within the Company, training is targeted and driven by each SET area so that employees are trained on the topics that are relevant to them. However, all employees receive training profiled for their role on our Ethical Interactions policy which reinforces our zero tolerance for bribery or corruption, or for the improper promotion of our products. This is delivered with our Code of Conduct training for all new starters and as part of the annual Code refresher training.

We continue to review our Global Policies and our range of supporting policies and standards, to ensure that they appropriately and effectively support our Code and Global Policies.
