the Latin American countries where Olympus does business.
Understanding anti-corruption laws

qualify as government entities and health care professionals, microscopists and all personnel
working for those institutions are Government Officials because of their employment relationships or
affiliations with public hospitals, public academic medical centers and core facilities. For this
reason, all applicants (health care professionals, microscopists, and any individual or personnel
acting on behalf of a Requesting Organization) must understand the following:
complete a detailed annual registration process to be deemed eligible to receive access to apply for
