ETHICS AND COMPLIANCE

Transparency

Industry interactions with the medical profession have a profound and positive influence in patient treatment and on the value of research. As primary providers of healthcare services, both healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations, offer us unique, independent insights and expert knowledge on patients' behavior and management of diseases. The capacity of gaining access to this expertise, plays a critical role in informing and guiding industry efforts to improve the quality of patient care and treatment options. And this is why, both healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations should be fairly compensated for their contributions, as well as for the services they provide to the industry.

Industry interactions with healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations should not only be conducted with integrity, but should also be transparent. And this is why we fully support, and have voluntarily adopted, the principles reflected in the new EFPIA Disclosure Code, additionally to the Disclosure Guidelines of MedTech Europe which we follow as members. Likewise, we will continue to support any other country codes which promulgate transparency reporting.

Based on the EFPIA and MedTech Europe codes, Grifols publishes the Methodological Note, as well as the country-specific reports of transfers of value made by Grifols to healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations corresponding to the reporting periods 2016, 2017 and 2018.
