PSI is a non-profit pharmaceutical industry association that was established about 20 years ago by the Security Directors from a number of research-based international pharmaceutical manufacturers. The Institute currently has 28 member companies. Its main objectives are to protect public health and safety through the sharing of information about the counterfeiting, illegal diversion and theft of pharmaceuticals, to support the PSI Members, law enforcement agencies and drug regulatory authorities to combat counterfeit medicines, to liaise with national and international organisations in the field of counterfeit and illicit medicines, to gather information and intelligence on all aspects of illegal medicines and to provide training and awareness raising to law enforcement in relation to pharmaceutical crime. PSI works with Interpol, World Customs Organisation, Europol, Council of Europe, regional and national police, customs and drug regulatory authorities and industry associations. PSI’s operations are global in scope and we emphasize information sharing and private-public sector cooperation.
