Standards of Conduct

Fundamental Frame of Mind

  1. 1.We, as an entity involved with the manufacture of medicine entrusted with people's health, will comply with all laws, and maintain a high level of ethical responsibility, including bioethics, in all of our actions.
  2. 2.We pledge to contribute to the health, well-being, and medical treatment of the people by conveniently providing inexpensive generic pharmaceuticals of good quality to patients and medical personnel.
  3. 3.We recognize that the foundation of the existence of our enterprise lies in the contributions that we make not only in improving people's lives, but also in the various social issues that we attempt to solve through our work.

  1. a.Because the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry creates medicine, a product that is tied to the lives and health of people, an especially strict and higher level of corporate ethics is expected.

Each and every member of our company must accept this as their mission, and regulate their actions based on a high level of corporate responsibility. A high level of corporate responsibility is one of strict self-control that puts the sanctity of life above all else, and possesses humility in scientific endeavors.
  2. b.The pharmaceutical needs of patients and medical personnel are not only safety and efficiency, but also extend to the quality of life (QOL) of patients and improvement in the quality of medical treatment. We strive to research and develop products that increase convenience for patients and medical personnel, and provide them at a high quality and a low price. We are constantly working at being able to fill greater needs.
  3. c.As members of the pharmaceutical industry, we at Yoshindo work to build mid to long term relationships of mutual trust between consumers, our customers, patients, medical personnel, and the drug manufacturing industry.
