irregularities reports this to a unit that can act to put a stop to the irregularities in question.
Examples of irregularities are breaches of laws and internal regulations and guidelines.
Whistleblowing is positive for the individual employee, the Group and society since it
provides an opportunity to resolve the irregularities in question. There are many reasons why
it is positive to speak out: it would be ethically correct, it would be necessary on the basis of
law and regulations and saying nothing could jeopardize the company’s image. Accordingly,
people who show civil courage and are prepared to speak out about irregularities are an
important resource for Moberg Pharma.
All employees are entitled to report irregularities. In the first instance, the employees can
always make a report in writing or orally to the immediate superior or to the CEO. All
employees can also choose to contact the Deputy Chairman of the Board, Wenche Rolfsen,
who is the contact person for whistleblowing.
