While GSK’s written standards help all of us address the significant risks we face, it’s not possible to cover every eventuality. What to keep in mind when taking action or making a decision: • Our values and expectations Appropriate regulations, standards and laws Tools to help us assess, treat, monitor and manage risk The possible impact on our patients and consumers, our company and ourselves Is it aligned with our values and expectations? Does it meet regulations and laws? Is it consistent with our policies? Have I assessed all the risks involved? Will this be clearly understood by a colleague? Would I be happy with this if I were a patient or consumer? When faced with a choice or dilemma, ask these questions: Yes: It looks like a good decision but if you have any doubts, talk to your manager. No Yes No: If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no’, then think again about what to say or do, talk to your manager, or use the reporting channels to speak up.

Our world More information Glossary 7 Living our values and expectations Our code of conduct Industry regulations and laws are vital to our work We are committed to abiding by country laws and regulations that apply to our company across the world. When local laws, regulations, applicable industry codes or other business specific GSK standards are stricter than our global written standards, we work to comply with the strictest requirements. For example, we follow the UK Bribery Act (2010) and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (1977) across our global company, as well as individual countries’ competition laws, wherever we operate. Complying with these regulations ensures we compete on equal terms with no unfair advantages. If you are unsure about the impact of different countries’ laws on your local activities, check with your aligned Global Ethics and Compliance (GEC) and/or Legal representative(s). For more information on Our written standards visit Our written standards resource centre on Connect GSK. Implications of not following this code of conduct Our corporate standards and policies apply to everyone who works for or on behalf of GSK. Failure to comply with them or any applicable legal and regulatory requirements may result in disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal or termination of contract or assignment. For senior managers, this could include financial recoupment for significant misconduct. Managers also have the responsibility to ensure their teams understand and follow this code of conduct and applicable written standards. Subject to local requirements, violations of this code of conduct by agency workers will be reported to their respective agencies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
