Our Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Principles Capsugel colleagues conduct all Capsugel business in a lawful and ethical manner, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, the U.K. Bribery Act 2010 and similar anti-bribery and anti-corruption legislation. These laws prohibit making, promising, or authorizing the making of a corrupt payment or providing anything of value to a government official to induce that official to make any governmental act or decision to assist a company in obtaining or retaining business. It is also against the policy of Capsugel for any Capsugel colleague to engage in commercial bribery. Capsugel requires all of its consultants, agents and representatives, as well as companies acting on behalf of Capsugel (Business Associates) to conduct their Capsugel-related work in accordance with these principles.

Corporate Responsibility and our Suppliers Capsugel’s Code of Business Ethics applies in all countries where Capsugel conducts business. It is a guide to Capsugel’s ethics and compliance structure, applicable laws, and key policies and procedures that govern how we do business in a legal and ethical manner.
Our Code of Business Ethics states that Capsugel will not tolerate the use of unlawful child labor, slavery, human trafficking or forced labor in the research, manufacture, sale and distribution of our products. This is further supported by (i) Capsugel’s Supplier Code of Conduct, which sets forth Capsugel’s principles with respect to lawful and ethical conduct throughout its supply chain, including prohibitions against forced labor, as well as Capsugel’s expectation that its suppliers comply with these principles; and (ii) Capsugel’s Fair Labor Practices Policy, through which Capsugel employees are required to do the same.
Certain jurisdictions have enacted laws and regulations designed to promote transparency and to help eradicate slavery and human trafficking from companies’ supply chains. For example, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires certain companies to disclose activities in which they engage in furtherance of those efforts, focusing on: verification; audits; certification; accountability; and training. Similarly, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 in the United Kingdom requires businesses over a certain size threshold to disclose each year what action they have taken to ensure there is no modern slavery in their business or supply chains.
Set forth below is a summary of Capsugel’s applicable policies and procedures used to combat unlawful child labor, slavery, human trafficking and forced labor in the research, manufacture, sale and distribution of its products:
