PhRMA Code on Interactions - Annual Certifications

PhRMA December 22, 2016

In June 2008, the PhRMA Board of Directors unanimously adopted measures to enhance the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals. The revised Code took effect January 1, 2009. Among its changes, the revised, voluntary Code provides that all companies (PhRMA members and non-members) that interact with healthcare professionals about pharmaceuticals should adopt procedures to assure adherence to the Code. It also states that PhRMA will identify on its website all companies that have announced their commitment to abide by the Code and completed an annual certification, that they have policies and procedures in place to foster compliance with the Code.
