CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT AND ETHICS
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of business conduct and ethics. The Code of Business
Conduct and Ethics reflects the business practices and principles of behavior that support this commitment. We
expect every employee, officer and director to read and understand the Code and its application to the
performance of his or her business responsibilities. References in the Code to employees are intended to also
cover officers and, as applicable, members of the Board of Directors ("Directors") and applies to all business
entities of Osteotech including, subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions and departments.
Officers, managers and other supervisors are expected to develop in employees a sense of commitment to the
spirit, as well as the letter, of the Code. Supervisors are also expected to ensure that all agents and contractors
conform to Code standards when working for or on behalf of Osteotech. Nothing in the Code alters the
employment at-will policy of Osteotech.
The Code cannot possibly describe every practice or principle related to honest and ethical conduct. The Code
addresses conduct that is particularly important to proper dealings with the people and entities with whom we
interact, but reflects only a part of our commitment. The following additional policies of Osteotech supplement or
amplify the Code in certain areas and should be read in conjunction with the Code: INSIDER TRADING
POLICY, EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK, HUMAN RESOURCES POLICY AND PROCEDURES MANUAL
AND/OR POLICY STATEMENTS, AND CORPORATE POLICY AND PROCEDURES.
Action by members of your family (spouse, children, siblings, parents, in-laws, brother or sister in-laws),
significant others or other persons who live in your household also may potentially result in ethical issues to the
extent that they involve Osteotech business. For example, acceptance of inappropriate gifts by a family member
from one of our suppliers could create a conflict of interest
