Code of ConductOn October 30, 2014, the Board of Directors of Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc amended and restated the Code of Conduct that applies to all of Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ directors, officers and employees (“Covered Personnel”). The principal purpose of the amendment and restatement was to provide additional guidance to Covered Personnel regarding the available channels for reporting of possible legal or policy violations, to bring certain provisions of the Code of Conduct into conformity with certain legal requirements in jurisdictions outside the United States and other existing policies and procedures of the Company and to make certain other technical and administrative changes. The revisions to the Code of Conduct did not relate to or result in any waiver, explicit or implicit, of any provision of the Code of Conduct in effect prior to its amendment and restatement.

Anti-Corruption PolicyJazz is committed to comply with applicable anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act (UKBA).  To help ensure compliance with these laws, Jazz has adopted a global Anti-Corruption Policy that applies to all employees of the company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and third party vendors and other agents acting on our behalf.

Supply Chain Transparency

Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc and its subsidiaries (“Jazz” or “the Company”) are committed to operating our global business with integrity and upholding a high level of ethical conduct among our employees and business partners. We expect suppliers which provide materials for use in our tangible goods for sale (“Product Suppliers”) to adopt sound human rights practices, to treat workers fairly, with dignity and respect, and in all cases to eliminate human trafficking and slavery in their workplace.

Verification: Jazz has existing procedures for assessing our Product Suppliers and is in the process of enhancing these procedures to include steps for evaluating whether our Product Suppliers comply with applicable laws related to eradication of human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor. Our Supply Chain and Quality Assurance teams oversee these verification procedures using an internally-developed multi-part assessment. In addition, Jazz has adopted written Supplier Standards, and requests that our Product Suppliers certify that they comply with applicable laws concerning human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor in the countries in which they do business.

Audits: Jazz conducts periodic and regular announced audits of its Product Suppliers to evaluate their compliance with Jazz’s policies and applicable legal and regulatory requirements. Jazz typically conducts such audits using its own personnel, although it reserves the right to engage an independent third-party auditor. Jazz’s current Contract Manufacturer Assessment Guidelines establish procedures for audits of potential and existing Product Suppliers, including their training, experience and qualifications, adherence to legal and regulatory requirements, and evaluation of the suppliers’ compliance with quality systems. In particular, Jazz expressly addresses human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor in its auditing protocol for Product Suppliers. Jazz tracks any observations and/or non-compliance in its Audit Follow-Up & Close-Out procedures to ensure that instances of non-compliance are properly remediated.

Materials: Jazz has adopted procedures that require Product Suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into Jazz’s products comply with the laws regarding human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor in applicable countries.

Accountability Standards: Jazz is in the process of establishing internal accountability standards and procedures, including disciplinary action for its employees and contractors with procurement responsibilities who fail to meet Jazz’s standards regarding identification and elimination of human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor in its supply chain.

Training: Jazz is in the process of developing training for its employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, particularly with respect to mitigation risks of human trafficking, slavery and illegal child labor within the supply chain.
