As a member of Medicines Australia, Astellas Pharma Australia has undertaken to be open and transparent when we provide a reportable payment or transfer of value to a healthcare professional. Reportable payments or transfers of value are:
- Payments for the provision of services such as giving a lecture, chairing an educational meeting, providing advice as a member of an Advisory Board or as a Consultant
- Airfares, accommodation and/or conference registration fees to attend medical education as part of those services.
Astellas Pharma Australia has prepared reports for publication in accordance with the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct, Edition 18 and Australia’s Privacy legislation. The reports identify healthcare professionals by name where their consent has been provided. Where consent has not been provided the information is reported in aggregate.
From 1 October 2016, reporting these payments will be mandatory – details will be reported because healthcare professionals should reasonably expect that all reportable payments or transfers of value will be disclosed for each healthcare professional, by name.
The reports are designed to be read on this website. They are also provided as downloadable CSV files.
To comply with our privacy obligations, the reports may be amended from time to time. The reports here contain the most up to date information. Any use or disclosure of the data by a third party is the responsibility of that third party, who must comply with the Australian Privacy Act 1988.
For further information about the details in the reports, please go to the Medicines Australia website.
The reports for activities and payments prior to 31 October 2018 have been made are available here:
These reports will be available for at least three years from the date of publication.
From 30 August 2019, this information will now be held in a database, administered by Medicines Australia. This database is designed to be searchable as well as downloaded as a CSV file.
