Transparency International Germany vs. Ratiopharm

Aperçu de la plainte

Date de soumission 18 July 2006
Statut actuel Rejected
Thème Ratiopharm's unethical marketing in Germany, Belgium et al
Résumé de la plainte Ratiopharm, a pharmaceuticals company and major producer of generic drugs, has allegedly engaged in unethical marketing practices, including bribing doctors and pharmacists in Belgium, Canada, Spain, Estonia and Germany. This is the second complaint concerning Ratiopharm submitted by Transparency International. In June 2006, the German NCP rejected the first complaint, because the case only raised issues about Ratiopharm’s activities in Germany.
Développements/Résultat In December 2006, the German NCP rejected the second complaint against Ratiopharm. The NCP argued that the complaint would had to be dealt with by the NCP of the country where the alleged misbehaviour occurred, i.e. Belgium, Canada, Estonia, and Spain.

Transparency International and the NCP met informally in March 2007. Again, the NCP insisted it could not accept the Ratiopharm case and refused to forward it to the relevant NCPs. The NCP claimed its “hands were tied”.

Transparency International maintains that the alleged misbehaviour emanates from Ratiopharm’s German headquarters to other countries. Therefore, the German NCP should take the lead in handling the complaint. In addition, the NCP’s refusal to forward the case to the other relevant NCPs inspires little faith in the NCP’s offer to assist informally.
