Working Together with Suppliers
Supplier Hotline for procurement transaction compliance reporting
We have established Supplier Hotline to receive specific information from suppliers when a supplier becomes aware of violations (or possible violations) of laws and regulations, or of compliance with the Group Compliance Policy or the Compliance Guidelines or the Group Anti-Bribery Guidelines. When we receive a report, we may ask for supplier’s cooperation in investigating the facts. Please do not report false, slanderous, defamatory, threatening or obstructive reports. This office is completely independent of any department involved in procurement, and we guarantee that no adverse action will be taken against the supplier who provided the information. When contacting us, please agree to the precautions at the beginning of the contact form.
- Please use the Kyowa Kirin Group Supplier Hotline for information on the pharmaceutical business.

Whistleblower contact for a wide range of stakeholders
The Kirin Group* is a full member of the Japan Center for Engagement and Remedy on Business and Human Rights (JaCER), a general incorporated association that provides an engagement and remedy platform in compliance with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We accepts complaints and reports related to human rights from all stakeholders in the supply chain through the engagement and remedy platform.
We are committed to resolving essential human rights issues by accepting complaints through a third party, thereby ensuring equality and transparency in the handling of complaints and responding appropriately to complaints and whistleblowing. We will ensure the anonymity of whistleblowers and the confidentiality of the content of their reports when receiving them.
For whistleblowing through JaCER, information will be disclosed anonymously on JaCER's website on a regular basis.
