"Transparency has the virtue of giving confidence"

Interview with José Zamarriego,
Farmaindustria's Deontology Unit Director (USD).
Conference: "Ethics and compliance". Friday 16th November.

José Zamarriego

You will give a lecture in one of the most expected presentations: "Ethics an compliance". Which are the objectives of your intervention?
As you will know, EFPIA agreed to develop a European transparency code for the relations of industry and health professionals in order to be transferred to self-regulatory systems for every member country, through national associations (such as Farmaindustria in the Spanish case). One of its main objectives is making public the specific relations between industry and health professionals in order to increase, through transparency, society's confidence on pharmaceutical industry. In my intervention, I will explain the guidelines of EFPIA's transparency code and its evolution.

The code has not been approved, but there are many expectations set on this document
It will be very important. The schedule is not yet closed, but the main thing is to spread in a positive way the relations with the industry and acreditate its value. This increases, without any doubt, transparency and consequently credibility and confidence in the pharmaceutical industry.

Society wants to know more and better about the pharmaceutical industry
Yes. We must follow what society wants to know and acreditate. To dispel doubts about pharmaceutical industry's purpose, through transparency. For instance, we count on an international platform where all the clinical essays are published, either positive or negatives. Transparency has the virtue of giving confidence.
