SIFI > Disclosure of Transfers of Value
Disclosure of Transfers of value 
SIFI is a pharmaceutical company committed to fulfilling the needs of its customers, both patients and ophthalmologists.
SIFI strongly believes that only a stable and constructive cooperation between healthcare professionals and the company can provide real benefits to patients.
SIFI is compliant with the Disclosure Code by Farmindustria (Italy), given that the implementation of the EFPIA Code (EFPIA: European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries) aims at the standardization in Europe of the behavior of companies and their relations with healthcare professionals.
“Disclosure” is the keyword for companies associated with Farmindustria, intended in order to disclose all transfers of value, both direct and indirect, between the pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals and organizations
The commitment to Disclosure is fulfilled by publishing transfers of value from the pharmaceutical company to the healthcare professionals and organizations on the company website, in the following fields of activity:
1. research and development of new drugs by clinical trials carried out at hospitals, universities and public and private health structures;
2. scientific consultancies;
3. symposia and scientific meetings providing educational and updated contents;
4. sponsorship of CME (Continuing Medical Education) meetings and courses, organized by public structures, universities, scientific societies and accredited CME providers.
These relationships are disciplined by national and international laws and are based on the mutual respect of the roles in a context of disclosure established by Farmindustria Ethical Conduct which provide for rigorous inspections carried out during precise investigation procedures by third party entities, chaired by magistrates appointed by the President of the Italian “Corte di Cassazione”
Data concerning Transfers of Value will be published only if the doctor agrees to publication by signing the specific form.
Data collected by companies will be treated and processed according to current policies and regulations.
If consent to publication is not available, the company is however bound to publish the data in a comprehensive form.
