Roche reinstated into ABPI

17th February 2009

Roche has been reinstated as a member of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), it has been reported.

The pharmaceuticals manufacturer was suspended from the organisation on July 14th 2008 for a period of six months for breaching guidelines.

Among its violations of the ABPI’s code, it was found to have infringed Clause 2, which deals with the activities of firms that reduce confidence in, or harm the reputation of, the pharmaceutical industry.

The board of management decided Roche should be reinstated as of yesterday (February 16th 2009). There will be a further audit to be held and a report reviewed in November 2009 to ensure sufficient progress with the business has been made.

Some of the developments Roche currently works on include therapies that directly target tumours of a range of cancers, such as breast, lung and gastrointestinal.

Made up of more than 70 UK companies, the ABPI is a trade association whose members collectively supply more than 80 per cent of the medicines prescribed through the National Health Service.
