Our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct serves as a guide to ensure the actions of our workforce members are consistent with Bio-Rad's Core Values. The Code helps our workforce members do the right thing and conduct themselves with the highest ethical standards, wherever Bio-Rad operates around the world.

On January 25, 2020, the Legal and Regulatory Compliance Committee of the Board of Directors approved an amendment and restatement of the Code of Business Ethics and Conduct ("Code of Ethics" or "Code of Business Ethics and Conduct"). The new Code of Ethics does not make material changes to the rights and responsibilities of Bio-Rad's officers, directors, and employees. It was revised to make it more interactive, accessible, and user friendly and to expand the discussion of certain core topics, including data privacy, information security, protection of intellectual property, records management, and leader engagement in conversations about acting with integrity. The foregoing summary of the amendments to the Code of Ethics is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Code of Ethics, as so amended and restated, a copy of which is posted above.

Bio-Rad workforce members can access a fully interactive Bio-Rad Code of Business Ethics and Conduct (iCode) on BIO-NET, the company's intranet. The iCode is available internally in the following languages:

  • English
  • Dutch
  • French Canadian
  • Italian

  • Russian
  • Chinese simplified
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese
