Performance

We drive supplier performance through feedback Sash Floral bluemulti Win Tank Top Ruffled The Pqa5w6H

We’ve established criteria for measuring the performance of the suppliers that have the greatest impact on our business. Performance monitoring, as described in the Lace Drop Up Shoulder Sweatshirt Sleeve zYfTxZnf, is conducted for this group of suppliers.

MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST ETHICAL STANDARDS

Our global standards set forth the principles that apply across all of our businesses worldwide. These standards provide guidance on interactions with individuals and groups such as healthcare professionals, customers, patients, and consumers. Local policies and procedures supplement these standards and assist employees in making compliance decisions at a country level.  We expect employees to do business the right way. These same expectations are applicable to Abbott suppliers when performing functions on our behalf.
