Pharmaceutical Law and Compliance/ Procurement
In Greece there is great growth in the field of pharmaceutical and parapharmaceutical products and dietary supplements.
Unfortunately, there is no extensive research into the discovery and creation of new drugs, but there is a large industry for the production of patented drugs on behalf of multinational companies as well as generic drugs whose patents have expired.
The purchase of Dossiers of pharmaceutical products – nutritional supplements and their promotion in the Greek market is proving to be particularly profitable today, as consumers are looking for supplements that will help them cope with the difficult, demanding and often stressful aspects of daily life.
At the same time, the cooperation of Greek companies with large multinational companies in the field of medicine but also the adoption by the Association of Pharmaceutical Companies of the Code of Ethics creates additional obligations of compliance with these Codes. Thus, the drafting of relevant internal Codes of Ethics in companies is essential, as well as the drafting of contracts and agreements with Health Professionals, hospitals and other health-related associations related to sponsorships, donations, attending seminars, assignments, etc. in a way that the respective Codes are observed.
