Posted on September 27, 2017

Ottawa, September 27, 2017

The following statement can be attributed to Innovative Medicines Canada’s president, Pamela Fralick:

“The innovative pharmaceutical industry will review any proposed legislation with respect to disclosure of payments once it is tabled.

Innovative Medicines Canada put forward a self-regulatory voluntary framework on disclosure of payments in June 2014.

We would like to work with the government and other stakeholders on the development of these new regulations, with a view to ensuring that they advance patient care, are practical, and are not excessively costly or burdensome for an already strained healthcare system.”
