Principles of Participation

The Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP) is a nonprofit organization chartered in 2011 to allow Internet industry leaders to come together and continue their efforts to address the growing problem of consumer access to illegitimate pharmaceutical products on the Internet.

Over a dozen of the world’s leading Internet and e-commerce companies have come together to form CSIP to focus on the promotion of safe online pharmacies through education and enforcement and the provision of a neutral forum for sharing information by and among private sector entities.

This document outlines our Principles of Participation for Internet intermediaries to address illegitimate online drug sellers as well as fundamentals of member involvement. It underscores the need for stakeholders to be willing to take voluntary actions that will enable all organizations involved to do more to make the Internet safer for patients.
