The board of the codes of conduct issued by the Foundation for the Code for Pharmaceutical Advertising (“the CGR”) and the Foundation for the Code of Conduct for Medical Devices (“the GMH”) have decided to further tighten their rules as of January 1st, 2024.

For example, the board of directors of a hospital will need to co-sign sponsorship and service agreements before a healthcare professional (for instance) may enter into a financial relationship with commercial parties (e.g. pharmaceutical companies).
