The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice


Members of MedTech Europe have approved a new Code of Ethical Business Practice in December 2015 to set high ethical standards for the medical technology industry across Europe.

 

The 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.

The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice became binding for MedTech Europe corporate members on 1st January 2017.
