MedTech Europe – Code of Ethical Business Practice

The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice which came into force on 1 January 2017 regulates all aspects of the MedTech industry’s relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs).

One important change introduced by the Code which became applicable on 1 January 2018 is the discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs. As of that date, independent medical education can be supported exclusively by means of Educational Grants. Such Educational Grants can be provided to Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) or to Professional Congress Organisers (PCOs).

The Congress will be submitted to CVS which is an independently managed system which reviews the compliance of third-party educational events with MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice and Mecomed Code of Business Practice (the “Codes”) to determine the appropriateness for companies which are members of MedTech Europe and Mecomed to provide financial support to the Congress in the form of educational grants or commercial activities (booths, advertising, satellite symposium).

We are available to help you with the needed procedure:

Invitation of healthcare professionals through educational grants, CVS accreditation of the Congress.
