Discontinuation of Direct Sponsorship of HCPs
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, applicable as of 1 January 2018 is discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs. As of that date, independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by means of Educational Grants.
