Starting in 2015 all transfers of value to HCPs and HCOs are collected and reported in 2016 – and every subsequent year thereafter. This includes,
- Grants and donations to HCO´s
- Speaker and consultancy fees for HCP´s
- Sponsoring of events organized by or on behalf of HCO´s
- Invitation of HCPs to congresses and educational or scientific meetings
- Research and development related transfers of value (only as aggregated report)
Please visit the EFPIA website: http://transparency.efpia.eu to receive further information about the new EFPIA Transparency Code.
The proposed EFPIA format for the disclosure report is used by the local pharma associations in Europe which are direct members of EFPIA. The report defines the different categories and how to disclose transfer of values to HCP´s and HCO´s on an annual basis.
The first data is published by end of June 2016 together with a methodological note how Grünenthal is collecting and disclosing the data in the reports. Transfers of values to HCP´s and HCO´s will be published by the country of the recipient and will include also transfers of values which are made by any other affiliate from Grünenthal.
Depending on the country regulations the information will be either published on the website of the respective Grünenthal affiliate or in a public registry which is being made available by the respective countries.
The complete overview of the transfers of values for the whole Group can be found below and is accessible via the short link: http://www.transparency.grunenthal.com
