International Compliance Trained Agency” Scheme (ICTAS®)
It has become increasingly important for UK based agencies to have an up to date knowledge of both the ABPI Code of Practice and other national Codes that operate across the European region. In fact many pharmaceutical companies are making it a contractual requirement that agency staff is compliance trained on a regular basis. To address this issue, and in response to requests from our clients, we have developed the "International Compliance Trained Agency" Scheme (ICTAS®).
Who is eligible to join ICTAS?
Agencies that have received training from PharmaCodes Compliance during the past year or are about to receive training from PharmaCodes Compliance will be eligible to join ICTAS (terms and conditions apply).
