Education of our officers, directors, employees, and representatives on their legal and ethical obligations is a key component of our compliance program. Isto is committed to taking steps to effectively communicate our standards and procedures to all affected personnel. In addition, Isto will regularly review and update our training programs and identify additional areas of training on an as-needed basis.
Isto has a longstanding policy of open communication among officers, directors, employees, and representatives. Our goal is that all parties know who to turn to report and discuss compliance matters and should be able to do so without fear of retribution. In order to assist with the reporting compliance matters, Isto has established a 24-hour toll-free telephonic answering service for reporting and tracking of compliance concerns to assist in the identification of possible unethical, illegal, or questionable behavior. The toll-free number is 1-800-724-1285 and should be utilized to report and discuss any compliance matters pertaining to Isto Biologics.
Isto’s Compliance Program includes efforts to monitor, audit, and evaluate compliance with our policies and procedures through the use of both internal and external resources.
Isto investigates every instance of a possible compliance violation. Although every potential compliance situation is considered on a case-by-case basis, Isto will consistently impose appropriate disciplinary action to address inappropriate conduct and deter future violations.
Isto’s compliance program increases the likelihood of preventing or, at least, identifying unlawful and unethical behavior. However, Isto recognizes that even an effective compliance program may not prevent all violations. Isto’s compliance program requires that Isto respond promptly to all potential violations of applicable law, regulation, or policy, take appropriate disciplinary action, perform an assessment of the violation to ascertain if the violation reveals a gap in our policies, practices, or internal controls, and take appropriate action to prevent future violations.
