SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Yuyu Pharma (CEO Robert Wonsang Yu, KRX: 000220) received Compliance Program (CP) Rating of "A" from the Korea Fair Trade Commission (FTC).
Yuyu Pharma (Yuyu) established its CP team in 2016 with the help of the law firm Kim & Chang.

The complete span of best- and worst-case ratings ranges from 'AAA' to 'D'.
