Following a successful certification in June 2021 by ELBACERT, a.s., the institution underwent another rigorous evaluation this year. Conducted over July 3-4, 2023, by CERTICOM s.r.o., the second certification audit reaffirmed the faculty's dedication to upholding the highest anti-corruption standards.
This noteworthy achievement was formally recognized on October 9, 2023, when Ing. Marek Krajčov, the director of the certification body, presented the award at a faculty leadership meeting.
Reinforcing its commitment, the faculty has instituted the "Anti-Corruption Council of JFMED," responsible for supervising the enactment and observance of anti-corruption policies. In a bold move towards transparency, individuals with concerns or information regarding corrupt practices are urged to approach any member of this council.
The central document delineating JFMED's anti-corruption procedures and policies is the "Anti-Corruption Management System Handbook." This manual offers detailed insights into the application of anti-corruption principles within the faculty.
Underscoring its pledge to openness and integrity, all documents and details relating to the anti-corruption management system are openly accessible on the faculty's official website.
