The Danish Association of Pharmaconomists is independent of party politics.

Members can contact the secretariat and receive help and guidance concerning salary and terms of employment.
The Association is non-political and negotiates seven collective agreements with public and private employers. The largest organisation of employers is the Danish Pharmaceutical Association, which covers the private pharmacies that are the major field of employment for pharmaconomists.
The Danish Association of Pharmaconomists was founded in 1946 and organises about 98% of all Danish pharmaconomists. The Association issues a publication for its members Farmakonomen (The Pharmaconomist), which come out 20 times per year.
The Danish Association of Pharmaconomists is a hearing party in relation to the authorities, the Ministry of Health and the Danish Medicines Agency in connection with new legislation and the establishment of rules that concern the pharmaconomist profession.
Like the Danish Pharmaceutical Association and the Association of Danish Pharmacists the Danish Association of Pharmaconomists has influence on the appointment of proprietor pharmacists as we have a promotion consultant who, together with the consultants of the two other Associations, express their opinion as to the suitability of applicants for a vacant pharmacy business.
The Danish Association of Pharmaconomists is a member of FTF (Salaried Employees and Civil Servants’ Association).
