This is a reminder that the EFPIA Code on the Promotion of Prescription-Only Medicines to, and Interactions with, Healthcare Professionals (EFPIA COPEFPIA) was updated on the 24 June 2013.
National codes therefore need to be by 31 December 2013, which means that 2014 will see a change in all national codes to reflect the revisions.
Revisions to the EFPIA COP include:
Amendment to Article 10 (previously Article 9) on Events & Hospitality, Article 17 (previously Article 10) on Gifts, and introducing a new Article 9 on Informational & Educational Materials, and Items of Medical Utility
