We want to do what is right
IFPA applies a zero-tolerance policy against corruption. Corruption poses a serious threat to development and counteracts what IFPA stands for and is working to achieve. IFPA’s approach towards corruption is consequently to always prevent, never accept, always inform and always act even in situations where it might lead to delays, hindrance or total obstruction of operations.
Reporting of suspected corruption is encouraged and a whistleblower is always protected from sanctions. Whistleblowers can be anonymous and all reported cases in accordance to this policy are investigated.
You have a vital role in our success.
Our whistleblowing policy
Primarily we encourage you to contact a manager in our organization directly. If you feel you cannot be open with your information, we offer the option of reporting your concern anonymously.
When to report
You can use this system to report suspicions if you are working with IFPA, including the IFPA Board, the IFPA Secretariat, and IFPA's regional and national associations. You do not need proof of your suspicions, but all reports must be made in good faith.
The whistleblowing system is limited to suspected corruption including:
- illegal activity
- financial reporting that is intentionally misleading
- improper or undocumented financial transactions
- improper destruction of records
- improper use of assets
- danger to employee health or safety
- violations of IFPA's Code of Practice on Relationships with the Pharmaceutical Industry
- Other serious financial irregularities
For workplace-related issues and complaints, we ask you to please contact your supervisor or the IFPA Board.
Your report will be securely handled
We encourage any employee or colleague who has a concern regarding IFPA’s governance, finances, or legal compliance to raise the concern with the Executive Director, or the President of the Board.
The Executive Director and Board will coordinate the investigation and IFPA will take appropriate action as it deems justifiable by the circumstances.
All reports will be processed in confidence.
