Ethics and Compliance

Like all Group entities, Mérieux Université is committed to acting in accordance with the Principles of Conduct published by Institut Mérieux and to ensuring that its practices, both internally and externally, are in line with a corporate culture that respects ethics and integrity. 

Committed to the fight against corruption, and in accordance with the law n° 2016-1691 known as “Sapin 2”, Mérieux Université has set up a procedure to assess the control of corruption risks for all its service providers and suppliers, with the support of the Institute’s Internal Audit Department and ADIT. Any new relationship with a Third Party is subject to a prior assessment that enables Mérieux Université to determine the level of exposure to corruption risks of the said Third Party, in accordance with the legislation in force.
