The EFPIA Code of Practice

In 2019, EFPIA consolidated its three EFPIA Codes (HCP - PO - Disclosure) into one simplified CodeThe objectives of this consolidation were the simplification of concepts, the removal of repetitive provisions, and the clarification of the content. This exercise has been conducted to update the Code provisions for a better concept alignment and to better promote the common understanding of the Code by stakeholders and the general public aiming to improve adherence to the Code.

The EFPIA Code constitutes the collection of ethical rules agreed by EFPIA members for the Promotion of Medicinal Products to HCPs and the interactions with HCPs, HCOs and POs, with the intent of guaranteeing that these activities are conducted while respecting the most stringent ethical principles of professionalism and responsibility. This Code applies to all types of communication and interaction (traditional and digital).
