CareDx Corporate Compliance and Ethics Program

At CareDx we recognize and are committed to conducting business in an ethical, lawful and socially responsible manner and strive to maintain the highest legal and ethical standards in conducting its business.  Through our Corporate Compliance and Ethics Program (“the Program”) we: (i) oversee and periodically assess the performance of the Program; (ii) assist in the identification and/or analysis of CareDx’s business and compliance risk areas; (iii) periodically review the implementation of adequate internal and external auditing and controls for the Program; and (iv) assess the implementation of effective management policies, procedures and practices relating to the Program. The Control Functions (meaning departments with oversight responsibilities) collectively implement the respective compliance programs listed below in accordance with the guiding principles from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) regarding the elements of an effective compliance program, as a baseline for ensuring compliance with the laws, regulations and industry guidance in scope for their area of oversight.

Duty to Report. All CareDx employees have a duty to report any potential, known or suspected violations of law, rules or regulations that apply to CareDx (a “Compliance Concern”) to the applicable Control Function or through the Compliance Helpline (in the event the individual would prefer to remain anonymous) at: Toll Free Phone: 1-877-441-1758 or Compliance Helpline webpage.

Anti-Retaliation. CareDx prohibits retaliation against an employee who, in good faith, seeks help or reports potential, known or suspected violations, including participating in an investigation or opposing any unlawful or discriminatory practices.
