Joining WSMI

The World Self-Medication Industry (WSMI) is a non-governmental and non-profit making, voluntary association in terms of Article 60 and following the Swiss Civil Code. Its membership comprises national, regional and multinational associations, and manufacturers and distributors of non-prescription medicines on all continents. Its headquarters are in Nyon, Switzerland (near Geneva).

Under the Articles of Association, any national, regional or multinational association of manufacturers, and persons, firms, or corporations who or which manufacture, own, or control any consumer healthcare product and whose business does not consist in substantial part of the retail sale of goods other than consumer healthcare products manufactured or controlled by them (manufacturers) may apply for admission to the federation as a full member.

Each request for admission by a national, regional or multinational association or by a manufacturer must be addressed in written form to the Director-General. Applications for admission are considered by the WSMI Board of Directors. A majority vote of Directors is required for admission.
