Code of Conduct for Supplying Companies - Code of Conduct

Suppliers and service providers play an essential role in our operations and in the delivery of our high quality and value-added services to our patients.

We therefore expect high standards of conduct from our suppliers and subcontractors in terms of social and environmental concerns, business ethics and integrity. The Supplier Code of Conduct introduced by SYNLAB AG is a clear guideline for our supplier companies and third parties working on behalf of SYNLAB. We expect our partner companies to comply with the principles of this Supplier Code of Conduct and to pass them on to their contractual partners in their supply chains.

Procedure for complaints regarding supplying companies

We encourage the reporting of supplier complaints when concerns arise about a situation that may not be in compliance with SYNLAB's Supplier Code of Conduct or when there are reasonable grounds to suspect violations of applicable laws and regulations.

At SYNLAB, we are committed to avoiding retaliation. Therefore, there are no discriminatory or disciplinary consequences for whistleblowers and third parties protected by applicable laws for filing a complaint or raising questions, doubts or concerns.
