Access to the Operating Room by Company Representatives

Medical technology companies are frequently requested to have a representative of the company (“Company Representative”) present during surgical or other medical procedures in order to train and educate, as well as support, medical personnel on the proper use of the companies’ technologies during such procedures.

In this Position Paper, MedTech Europe member companies set out the issues related to such Company Representative’s presence during a procedure—be it in the operating room as well as in other settings, such as cardiac catheterization laboratories or special procedure rooms (collectively, “OR”) – and express their common position and recommendations as to the legitimate purposes for such presence, the actions to be performed and safeguards to be applied.
