SUB: UNIFORM CODE OF PHARMACEUTICAL MARKETING PRACTICES EFFECTIVE FROM 1-1-2015
The Department of Pharmaceuticals has forwarded the Uniform Code of Pharmaceutical Marketing Practices (UCPMP) informing that it is being implemented
from 1st January 2015 (Copy attached).
Members will be aware that IDMA has published a voluntary Code of Marketing Practices quite some time ago for our Member-companies and is committed to
the code of ethical marketing practices broadly in line with the UCPMP. Your Association is seized of the matter and will be discussing the same with
the Government and other authorities so that the industry as a whole adheres to a workable practical Code.
Though the Code is voluntary, Members are requested to adhere to the same to ensure ethical and transparent marketing practices.
