GIRP has created this site as part of its efforts to improve public awareness and understanding of the (integrated) pharmaceutical full-line wholesalers and the policy issues that affect them.

Please note that this site is not intended to address questions about individual wholesale distributors or to give professional or legal advice. If you are seeking such information, please contact directly the individual member associations or companies.


While our goal is to keep this information timely and accurate, GIRP cannot accept any responsibility or liability with regard to the material on this site. If errors are brought to our attention, we will try to correct them.

GIRP does not accept any responsibility or liability with respect to linked external sites over which it has no control.

GIRP cannot guarantee that a document available online exactly reproduces an officially adopted text; for instance, only European Union legislation published in the paper editions of the Official Journal of the European Communities is deemed authentic.
