The HVS2020 annual meeting which will take place in Abu Dhabi from February 15-16, 2020, has received the status of COMPLIANCE with MedTech regulations.
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).
