Philips North America LLC Compliance Program 

 

Acting with integrity is at the heart of our culture, and is part and parcel of our company’s mission and vision.

 

While pursuing our business objectives, we aim to be a responsible partner in society, acting with integrity towards our employees, customers, business partners and shareholders, as well as the wider community in which we operate.  The Philips Healthcare Compliance Program is a vital component of that commitment to the Always Acting With Integrity.  Below are some of the critical elements of our compliance program: 

 

Annual Certification of Compliance with the Corporate Comprehensive Compliance Program for California

 

Philips North America LLC, a division of Royal Philips., and its affiliates (“Philips”), has established and is operating under a Comprehensive Compliance Program (“CCP”).

Where applicable, is in accordance with the “Compliance Program Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers” issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (“CPG”), and the AdvaMed and NEMA/MITA Codes of Ethics on Interactions with Healthcare Providers (“Device Industry Codes”).

Not a drug manufacturer
Because Philips is a medical device manufacturer – not a drug manufacturer – certain guidance set forth in the CPG does not apply to Philips and its operations. Similarly, Philips’ CCP is based on Device Industry Codes and not the PhRMA Code of Ethics for the pharmaceutical industry.

With these clarifications and Philips’ good faith understanding of the statutory requirements, Philips is – to the best of its knowledge – in compliance with the provisions of the California Health and Safety Code §§119400-119402, to the extent they apply to Philips North America LLC.
