Compliance
&
Ethics

Our Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics (Standards) provide general guidance on conducting business in a compliant and ethical manner. However, they do not provide a complete explanation of all the laws, regulations, policies and procedures that Maxheal employees must follow.

Our Standards are also an expression of our deeply held values about how to do the right thing in pursuit of our Mission to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases. These values, such as integrity, ethical behaviour, excellence and commitment, are at the core of our daily business decisions and actions, as a company and as employees. We face so many complex situations every day that it is impossible to imagine a set of rules that are comprehensive enough to cover every situation. Our values help us decide how to act when no specific rule is available. When making a decision it is always a good idea to ask yourself, "what is the right thing to do," "is it legal," "does it comply with Company policies," and "how would it be understood by the public, the media and the government?" Decisions that are grounded in values and that reflect all of these considerations, are more likely to be the right ones.

Maxheal conducts business with, and maintains a culture of, ethics and integrity across our organization. We require all our employees, in addition to contractors, consultants, vendors and individuals who do business with Maxheal, to know and adhere to our high standards of ethics and integrity.

In our mission to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases, we support a clean and healthy environment and subscribe to policies and practices that merit the trust and confidence of our society.

WHO GMP - World Health Organisation Good Manufacturing Practice

Many countries follow the guidelines provide by WHO. Food and Drugs Control Authority India follows WHO guidelines. WHO GMP certification is a requirement and well accepted in most of the countries across Asia, Africa, CIS and Latin America

WHO Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. The main risks are: unexpected contamination of products, causing damage to health or even death; incorrect labels on containers, which could mean that patients receive the wrong medicine; insufficient or too much active ingredient, resulting in ineffective treatment or adverse effects.

WHO GMP covers all aspects of production; from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process - every time a product is made.

WHO has established detailed guidelines for good manufacturing practice. Many countries have formulated their own requirements for GMP based on WHO GMP.

ISO standards contribute to making the development, manufacturing and supply of products and services more efficient, safer and cleaner. They make trade between countries easier and fairer. They provide governments with a technical base for health, safety and environmental legislation.
They aid in transferring technology to developing countries. ISO standards also serve to safeguard consumers, and users in general, of products and services - as well as to make their lives simpler.
