On 1 January 2021, MedTech Europe and EFPIA have joined forces to ensure consistency and harmonization in the assessment of medical conferences’ compliance across the healthcare industry.
Both compliance platforms, the Conference Vetting System and e4ethics, are now aligned in most aspects to conduct conference assessments. As a reminder, they both operate independently from MedTech Europe and EFPIA, via a common compliance team. This implies that assessment decisions are now binding for both organizations’ member companies since 1st January 2021 (with a 6-month pilot period).
As it was already the case for MedTech Europe members, a positive assessment is now required for EFPIA members to be able to support an educational medical conference. The type of support allowed remains regulated under the respective EFPIA and MedTech Europe Codes.
