Policies/Professional standards/Guidance/Statements

One of FIP’s most important tasks is to set global pharmacy standards through policy statements and professional/scientific guidelines, as well as through collaboration with other international organisations, including the World Health Organization and other United Nations agencies to produce joint statements or guidelines. The types of document that FIP issues include, among others: 

  • Statement of policy This sets out FIP’s current policy on a specific subject. Its existence indicates that the federation intends to pursue this policy with other relevant international organisations and expects its member organisations to promote the policy to national bodies, including governments.
  • Statement of professional standards This sets out the standards that FIP expects pharmacists to observe in discharging their professional responsibilities in one or more areas of practice. The federation expects its member organisations to take steps, in the light of local circumstances, to ensure that the standards are achieved by practising pharmacists undertaking the professional activity concerned. FIP guidelines are more detailed versions of a statements of professional standards.
  • Reference paper This is a collection of evidence and comprehensive analysis of a specific matter intended to serve as evidence for the development of an FIP statement.

FIP’s official relationship status with the World Health Organization also entitles it to make statements at the World Health Assembly.
