What are the requirements for declaring sponsorship?
Pharmaceutical companies need to ensure they and their third parties (refer to Clause 1.24 for the definition of third party) meet the requirements of the Code including the need to declare sponsorship (refer to Clause 1.22 for the definition of sponsorship). This is also required when a pharmaceutical company provides sponsorship for an activity to an independent organisation. The declaration must name the pharmaceutical company and provide the exact details of the nature of the sponsorship. Further information can be found in Clauses 5.5 and 10.9, including their supplementary information.
