Both the Pharma Code and the Pharma Cooperation Code were adopted by the Associations of the Pharmaceutical Industry in Switzerland. The signatories of the Pharma Code and of the Pharma Cooperation Code are listed online (eg on scienceindustries’ website). These codes bind the vast majority of pharmaceutical companies in Switzerland and contain detailed provisions with regard to the authority of the Code Secretariat in case of breaches of the codes as well as the procedures to follow (rule 6 Pharma Code; rule 5 Pharma Cooperation Code).

The Guidelines on “Collaboration between the Medical Profession and Industry” by the SAMW are directed at healthcare professionals. They are applicable to all members of the Foederatio Medicorum Helveticorum (FMH), which is the professional association of more than 40,000 Swiss doctors and the umbrella organisation of over 70 medical organisations (Article 18 of the Code of Professional Conduct of the FMH).
