Further, Elan will execute a mutual improvement and competitive best practice strategy to improve the manufacturing performance and reduce the manufacturing and materials costs for the Product.

SCHEDULE 8

COMPLIANCE WITH ANTI-CORRUPTION LAWS

1.    Anti-Corruption Principles and Legislation. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) adopted a convention on combating bribery of foreign public officials in international business transactions, effective 15 February 1999 (the “Convention”). The Convention requires contracting states to enact legislation relating to combating bribery of foreign public officials in international business transactions. Such legislation has been passed in Israel and, separately, in the United States as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and in the United Kingdom as the U.K Bribery Act 2010. These and other anti-corruption laws are herein referred to collectively as the “Anti-Corruption Laws” and, together with the Convention, as the “Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles.”

The Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles prohibit the corrupt payment, offer, promise, or authorization of the payment or transfer of anything of value or any benefit, directly or indirectly, to any Government Official, or to any other person while knowing that all or some portion of the payment, thing of value, or benefit will be offered, given, promised, or passed on to a Government Official. Certain of the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles also prohibit commercial bribery—i.e., the payment or transfer of anything of value, any benefit, or any advantage, directly or indirectly, to any private person with the intention to improperly obtain or retain business or any business advantage or to improperly influence the recipient’s behavior.

2.    Knowledge and Compliance. Elan understands, and shall ensure that all Elan Personnel understand, that Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. and/or its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Teva Group”) are subject to the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles. Elan agrees that it shall cause all Elan Personnel to be similarly bound by the provisions contained herein.

Elan agrees to ensure that it and all Elan Personnel are knowledgeable regarding the purpose and provisions of the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles, and also agrees to take appropriate steps to ensure that it and such Elan Personnel will comply with the letter and spirit of the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles and will not take any actions which would cause either Party to violate or contravene the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles.

Elan will maintain, and ensure that any Company that uses Elan Personnel likewise maintain, policies, procedures, and internal controls to ensure that it will be in compliance with the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles in connection with its performance of the Agreement. Such policies, procedures, and internal controls will include processes through which all Elan Personnel will obtain approval for expenditures that may be incurred on behalf of or result in payments to Government Officials, healthcare professionals, or customers in connection with Elan’s and any Elan Personnel’s performance of the Agreement (e.g., gift, travel, entertainment, hospitality, conference, meeting, event, consulting, and research expenditures).

3.     Status of Employees, Family Relationships. Elan represents that no Elan Personnel are Government Officials. Elan represents that it has fully disclosed to the Teva Group any existing Close Family Member relationships between any Elan Personnel and any Government Official, and Elan agrees to notify the Teva Group of any such Close Family Member relationship that may arise during the Term.

4.    No Action Contrary to Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles. Elan represents that neither it nor any Elan Personnel has been found by a government agency or court to have violated the FCPA or any Anti-Corruption Law of any country. Elan represents and covenants further that nothing of value received by it or any Elan Personnel under or in connection with the Agreement has been or will be accepted or used by it for any purpose that would violate or be contrary to the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles, nor has it or will it take any action that would violate or be contrary to Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles.


5.    Method of Payments. The Parties agree that all payments made to Elan in connection with the Agreement shall be made after receipt by the Teva Group of an invoice detailing the products or services provided during the Term. All payments under the Agreement shall be made by check or bank transfer for the benefit of, or to the account of, Elan in the country where goods and/or services are delivered/provided or the country of residence/principle place of business of Elan. Elan shall ensure that all payments made to Elan Personnel in connection with the Agreement shall be made in the same manner as payments made to Elan.

6.    No Unlawful Payments. Elan represents and covenants further that, unless permitted under the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles, neither it nor any Elan, has paid, promised to pay, authorized a payment, given, permitted to give, or authorized the giving, nor will it or Elan pay, promise to pay, authorize a payment, give, promise to give, or authorize the giving of anything of value or any benefit to any Government Official for purposes of (i) influencing any act or decision of such Government Official in his official capacity, (ii) inducing such Government Official to do or omit to do any act in violation of the lawful duty of such official; (iii) securing any improper advantage; or (iv) inducing such Government Official to use his influence to affect or influence any act or decision of the applicable government with respect to any activities undertaken relating to the Agreement.

7.    Accurate Books and Records. Neither Elan nor any Elan Personnel will make or permit any off-the-books accounts, inadequately identified transactions, recording of non-existent expenditures, entry of liabilities with incorrect identification of their object, or the use of false documents in connection with performing the Services. Elan will, and will ensure that Elan Personnel will, keep books, accounts, and records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect its transactions and dispositions of funds paid under the Agreement.

8.    Rights of Audit. Without derogating from any other rights which the Teva Group has to audit the records of Elan and any Elan Personnel under the Agreement or any other agreement between Elan or any Elan Personnel and any member of the Teva Group, during the Term and a period of five (5) years thereafter, the Teva Group shall be entitled to audit all books, records, invoices, and relevant documentation of Elan and any Elan Personnel related to the Agreement in order to verify compliance with the terms of this Schedule 8 and the requirements of the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles. Elan will cooperate fully in any audit or investigation conducted by the Teva Group in relation to compliance with the Agreement or the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles.

9.    Obligation to Update/Report Changes. Elan agrees that all of the representations contained herein shall remain true and accurate throughout the duration of the Agreement. Elan must inform the Teva Group promptly if it becomes aware of any potential breach of this Schedule 8 or the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles or any other change that would render any of the representations herein untrue or inaccurate. Elan shall require all Elan Personnel to inform Elan promptly if such Elan Personnel become aware of any potential breach of this Schedule 8 or the Anti-Corruption Laws and Principles or any other change that would render any of the Subcontractor’s representations untrue or inaccurate. Failure to notify the Teva Group under this Schedule 8 shall constitute a material breach of the Agreement by Elan entitling the Teva Group to terminate the Agreement.


10.    Annual Certification. In its sole discretion, the Teva Group may require that Elan (and any Elan Personnel) complete an annual certification or provide some other form of assurance of compliance with this Schedule 8.

11.    Conflicting Anti-Corruption Law Requirements. In the event of inconsistency in the requirements of the Anti-Corruption Laws applicable to Elan and any Elan Personnel in connection with the Agreement, the Parties shall comply with the stricter Anti-Corruption Law.

12.    Definitions. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein have the meanings given such terms in the Agreement. For the purposes of this Schedule 8, the following terms have the meanings assigned to them below:

(i)    “Close Family Member” means any parent, child, spouse, or sibling, whether by blood or marriage.

(ii)    “Elan Personnel” means any person or entity employed or engaged by Elan, including without limitation, its owners, directors, officers, employees, subcontractors, consultants, advisors, agents and other representative who will provide Services in connection with the Agreement.

(iii)    “Company” means a general or limited partnership, a corporation, a trust, a joint venture, an unincorporated organization, a limited liability entity, and any other business or legal entity.
