EthicsPoint “Hotline” Compliance Reporting Procedures
All reports submitted through “EthicsPoint,” our compliance hotline service provider, may be made on an anonymous basis, although the details of your report may identify you and may be shared as needed as part of any resulting investigation. If you do submit your report anonymously, please continue to monitor your report, because we may need to ask additional follow up questions.
You have two methods to contact EthicsPoint. The phone number below is not Caller-ID enabled. The online form may be completed anonymously as well. Your request will be handled through EthicsPoint, which is an independent third-party service provider:

All reports are shared with the Chair of CryoLife’s Board of Directors and each of the Chairs of the Audit Committee and the Compliance Committee.
All reports relating to CryoLife’s accounting, auditing, internal accounting controls or auditing matters, or violations of CryoLife’s Code of Conduct, the Foreign Corrupt Policy Act, or possible violations of other anti-corruption laws will be reviewed by the Audit Committee.
