Legal & Ethics Notice


Arthrex’s Commitment to Ethics and Compliance

Because Arthrex is committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and corporate compliance, we have established a Comprehensive Compliance Program that is reasonably designed to prevent and detect violations of our Standards of Conduct and applicable laws and regulations. Our Compliance Program is in accordance with the Compliance Program Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG), as well as the Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals published by the Advanced Medical Technology Association (''AdvaMed''). The AdvaMed Code is the medical device equivalent to the Code on Interactions with Health Care Professionals developed by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (''PhRMA'').

The Arthrex Compliance Program is tailored to the size, organizational structure, operational activities and resources to meet compliance goals consistent with our corporate ethics and with the statutory requirements of California. Health and Safety Code §§119400-119402.

The Arthrex Comprehensive Compliance Program recognizes that compliance is dynamic. It provides for revisions when necessary to reflect changes in company operations, the OIG's Compliance Program Guidance and the AdvaMed Code.

Code of Conduct (Translations)

Other Compliance Documents:

To the best of our knowledge, Arthrex is in material compliance with both the Compliance Program and California Health and Safety Code §§119400-119402. As recognized by the OIG, a manufacturer's implementation of a Compliance Program may not entirely eliminate improper conduct by employees. However, Arthrex expects all of its employees to fully comply with its Compliance Program, and Arthrex takes all reasonably necessary steps to detect, prevent, investigate, and properly address violations of its Program.
