The Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority

The Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) is the self-regulatory body which administers the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) Code of Practice for the Pharmaceutical Industry, independently of the ABPI.  It was established by the ABPI on 1 January 1993.

The Authority is responsible for the provision of advice, guidance and training on the Code as well as for the complaints procedure.  It is also responsible for arranging for conciliation between companies when requested to do so and for arranging for the scrutiny of advertising and meetings on a regular basis.
