Strengthening the global compliance organization
At Chugai, ethics take priority over profits. However, worldwide Compliance Requirements are increasing, and as our business scope expands globally, so do the business risks. In light of these and other developments, we began building a Group-wide cross-functional global compliance organization in January 2016.
Specifically, we updated our compliance policy and defined the areas of compliance, reorganized committees and organizational structures, improved our global documentation system, and formulated local guidelines, manuals, and SOPs for overseas subsidiaries based on each country’s laws and regulations.
We will continue to evolve to the highest level in the world by advancing our compliance initiatives under this organization. To achieve this, it is important for overseas subsidiaries to implement the PDCA cycle voluntarily, and autonomously strengthen their compliance. To this end, we will be sharing educational materials and various information, and working actively to ensure that the risk compliance officers appointed by each company can harmoniously carry out their responsibilities.
