A strong, positive compliance culture, in which we strictly adhere to Fresenius Medical Care’s policies and all applicable laws and regulations in all jurisdictions is essential.
Fresenius Medical Care encourages to report potential cases of non-compliance as well as actual or perceived misconduct that violates our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct, other company guidelines or laws.
There are several ways in which they can do so: Employees can reach out to their managers or their superiors or to specialists in functions such as Compliance, Legal or Human Resources.
We have also set up an external hotline system – called the Compliance Action Line – operated by an independent, certified third-party vendor for our employees and related third parties to report potential violations of laws or company guidelines.
Reports can be made confidentially and, if desired, anonymously, where legally permitted. The system is available 24 hours a day and reports can be made by telephone (using the toll-free number for your country) or by electronic platform in several local languages.
