Farmaindustria is the National Trade Association of the Spanish based pharmaceutical industry. It gathers most of the R&D based pharmaceutical companies established in our country, representing nearly 100% of prescription medicines sales in Spain.
The pharmaceutical industry is a strategic sector for society, both for the nature of its activity, based in its commitment with healthcare, as well as for its economic and business contribution, with an utmost added value.
The pharmaceutical industry provides society with one of the most precious goods, which most contributes to the welfare and health of the population: medicines. The industry researches, develops, produces and markets pharmaceuticals which relieve maladies, and cures diseases.
The system of self-regulation of the pharmaceutical industry is based on five fundamental principles: legality, responsibility, commitment, transparency and prevention. These principles not only ensure full compliance with the existing national and international legal framework, but also ensure that the promotion of medicines and relations with health professionals and patient organisations are carried out under the strictest ethical principles of professionalism and accountability, enhancing confidence in the pharmaceutical industry. The application of the system of self-regulation, materialised in the Code of Good Practices of the Pharmaceutical Industry.
