Internal Investigation & Compliance – Pharmaceutical Marketing & Sales

Pharmacological companies should be expected to adhere to strict marketing guidelines, given that doctors and patients rely on their information and advertising to make decisions concerning the treatment and health of their patients. There are national and international regulations, including the World Health Organization’s Ethical Criteria for Medicinal Drug Promotion that companies are expected and encouraged to follow. In the United States, additional laws address the relationship between pharmacy representatives and medical professionals, such as the False Claims Act, the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, anti-bribery laws, and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
