We know that transparency is essential to building and maintaining confidence in us and in our medicines. We want people to know, and understand, what we do and how we do it.
Our business is regulated by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) Code of Practice for the Pharmaceutical Industry which has detailed requirements to ensure its member companies operate in a responsible, ethical and professional manner. The Code includes requirements for how we may work with healthcare professionals, healthcare organisations and patient organisations and in recent years it has introduced new requirements for greater transparency in these areas.
We strongly support the work the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) and ABPI have done to move towards greater transparency across the pharmaceutical industry.
