Our corporate Code of Conduct and policies govern actions of our employees worldwide as well as our interactions with third parties. These policies reflect Varian’s values and are designed to provide employees and members of our Board of Directors with guidance in areas of daily business activity and to demonstrate Varian's commitment to ethical and lawful conduct.
We are committed to engaging in ethical interactions with both customers and business partners throughout our business operations worldwide, and to supporting a safe working environment for all. Varian has selected business partners throughout the supply chain to supply products and services in countries in which there is no local Varian office. These business partners are required to comply with our Code of Conduct and certain corporate policies, as detailed in their engagements.
We also use an extensive evaluation process and ongoing dialogue with business partners to monitor and assess their performance beyond financial criteria, including quality indicators, health and safety standards, customer support and timeliness.
