Compliance & Transparency

We aim to make a difference by conducting business with the highest integrity, making information available as needed to our patients, employees, global stakeholders, medical professionals and the broader healthcare community.

The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the "Code") serves as our roadmap for acting ethically whenever and wherever we conduct business. Together with other company policies which provide more detailed information on specific topics, the Code will help us apply basic principles to our daily conduct so that we can ensure we are following both the letter and the spirit of the law while conducting business with honesty and integrity. We expect everyone with whom we conduct business to honor the principles outlined in the Code.

Our Comprehensive Compliance Program is one of the key components of our corporate conduct and has been tailored to fit the unique environment of our company. The program, which follows the Seven Elements of an Effective Compliance Program, is routinely reviewed by our global and regional compliance committees. We regularly enhance our program to meet evolving compliance standards and needs.

lncyte recognizes that ethical relationships with healthcare professionals and organizations are critical to its mission of helping patients by developing and marketing new medicines. Our interactions with healthcare professionals and organizations are professional exchanges intended to enhance the practice of medicine for the benefit of patients, and we follow the highest standards of integrity, ethical conduct, and full compliance with the laws, regulations and applicable codes of marketing practice, including the U.S. PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals (the "PhRMA Code"). Additionally, we also comply with applicable disclosure and declaration requirements related to interactions and transfers of value provided to reportable recipients, such as the U.S. Sunshine Act.


The Physician Payment Sunshine Act (Sunshine Act) was passed as part of healthcare reform in March 2010 and was in effect as of August 1, 2013. The Sunshine Act, also referred to as "Open Payments," requires pharmaceutical manufacturers such as Incyte, medical device companies, and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to track and report certain ownership interests, payments and transfers of value, including meals, refreshments, educational items and fee-for-service compensation provided to U.S. physicians and teaching hospitals.

Incyte complies with the disclosure requirements and encourages individuals to reference the Open Payments website, which is managed by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), for additional information.

Incyte is committed to keeping the lines of communication open and fostering a speak-up culture. The Compliance Helpline provides multiple options to speak up confidentially through a third party and report concerns or misconduct:


Respecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of human beings everywhere is at the core of Incyte’s purpose to find solutions for patients with unmet needs and embedded in how we work to achieve that purpose.

At Incyte, our efforts to protect the rights of people regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability or other personal status, are grounded in the principles of:

  • the United Nations' (U.N.s') International Bill of Human Rights;
  • the U.N.s' Universal Declaration of Human Rights;
  • the U.N.s' Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights; and
  • the International Labor Organization's (ILO's) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work

This commitment extends beyond our patients and colleagues, our operations, and the communities we serve. Respecting human rights is embodied in everything we do from setting a company culture of inclusivity and openness for colleagues, to progressing clinical trial diversity for our patients, to setting expectations with partners.

Essential Principles of our Human Rights Commitment

  • Prohibition of Child Labor and forced labor: We are strictly against the employment of child labor or forced labor in any form whatsoever, paid or unpaid.
  • Non-discrimination: We appreciate one another’s differences and strengths and are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We value diversity of backgrounds and perspectives and our policy is that we do not discriminate based on race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, military and veteran status, sexual orientation or any other protected characteristic as established by federal, state or local laws.
  • Workplace Security & Anti-harassment: We are committed to maintaining a workplace that is free from violence, harassment, intimidation and other unsafe or disruptive conditions. To support this initiative, we have policies in place that prohibit harassment of all kinds and routinely train employees on ways to prevent harassment in the workplace.
  • Freedom of Association: We uphold all legislation affecting employees in the country of our operation, ensuring the right to fair wages, freedom of association, participation and collective bargaining. Our employees are free to join, form or refrain from any employee collectives without fear of retaliation, harassment or intimidation of any kind.
  • Safety, Health & Well-being: Our goal is to conduct business in a manner that does not compromise the health of people nor the state of the environment. Our policy is to comply with all applicable environmental, health and safety (EHS) regulatory requirements and seek to continually improve our EHS management systems. A strong safety culture is a fundamental part of how we work, and our philosophy is that everyone at Incyte has a responsibility to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace with a goal to reduce risk and prevent injuries. We also promote well-being with our employee benefits program, which aims to help employees and their families maintain healthy lives, achieve a proper work/life balance, manage finances and more.
