FIFARMA and its members adhere to the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA) Code of Practice. First developed in 1981, the Code has been revised over recent decades, with its most recent update in 2019, ensuring that practices in the pharmaceutical industry are governed by ethical standards in line with evolving societal expectations.
