Code of Conduct
Amgen’s Business Conduct Standards provide staff members with important tools to ensure that they “Do the Right Thing” in all business practices.
In today’s complex, global business world, no company can assume that the right course of action is always clear. To help us Do The Right Thing by conducting business ethically, we have created a Code of Conduct which, along with Amgen’s Mission, Aspiration, Values and Leadership Attributes, provides the best guidance for our staff’s decisions and actions.
At Amgen, it’s everyone’s responsibility to Do The Right Thing by conducting business ethically. This means that our staff members must:
- Understand and adhere to the Code of Conduct, which requires that they follow all applicable laws and Amgen policies.
- Seek clarification or guidance when they have a compliance question.
- Report a concern when they suspect a violation of the Code of Conduct, an Amgen policy or applicable law through the Business Conduct Hotline, or any of the other various resources listed in the Code of Conduct.
- Use their good judgment and act with honesty and integrity.
All regular Amgen staff are required to complete Code of Conduct training on an annual basis. Every person conducting business for Amgen worldwide must follow our Code of Conduct, together with all applicable laws and company policies. This includes all staff, as well as consultants, contract workers and temporary workers. The Code of Conduct applies to all Amgen locations, affiliates and subsidiaries. Amgen will not tolerate violations of its Code of Conduct or associated policies.
