Conflicts of interest may arise in day-to-day business where the interests of CHEPLAPHARM are not aligned with the personal interests of its employees.

It is CHEPLAPHARM´s objective to identify conflicts of interest and take steps to eliminate them so that decisions can be made without bias in the spirit of CHEPLAPHARM. Any suspicion of a conflict of interest must therefore be reported immediately to the responsible superior.
