MEDTECH EDUCATIONAL SUPPORTS

MedTech Europe, the European trade association representing the medical technology industry, certified OIC as an Ethical MedTech Trusted Partner. Once more, we can support MedTech Europe member Companies and Healthcare Organizations with our suitable compliance services!

THE NEW CODE OF ETHICS

MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice regulates all aspects of the industry’s relationship with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs), such as company-organised events, arrangements with consultants, research and financial support to medical education, amongst others. It also introduces an independent enforcement mechanism.

KEY POINTS

● From 1 January 2018, MedTech Europe Member Companies and their representatives no longer permit to provide direct financial support to individual HCPs from the MedTech Europe Geographic Area, which includes EU and EEA countries as well as Russia, Turkey and the countries governed by Mecomed to attend Third-Party Organised Events.

● Support to medical education offered to Third Party Organised Events must be provided through Educational Grants given to HCOs, such as scientific societies, hospitals or foundations or Professional Congress Organisers (PCOs). The selection of the beneficiaries of these Grants must be the sole responsibility of the HCO/PCO receiving the Educational Grant.

OPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS

Companies that are interested in granting an Educational Support need to inform the Organizing Secretariat by filling in the “Educational Support Form” and by sending it no later than 15/4/2021.
A specific newsletter including all the details for Educational Supports will be sent shortly.
