#3 HSF Meeting @ Croatia is COMPLIANT to the MedTech Criteria - please see HERE.
MedTech Europe, is dedicated to ethics and compliance projects in the European MedTech industry.
The Conference Vetting System is a unique initiative in the healthcare industry. This independently managed system reviews the compliance of third-party educational events with both MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice and Mecomed Code of Business Practice (the “Codes”) to determine the appropriateness for companies which are members of MedTech Europe and Mecomed to sponsor Healthcare Professionals to participate in such conferences. CVS aims to simplify and centralise decision-making for MedTecg Europe and Mecomed members by establishing a single assessment procedure based on a set of criteria provisioned in the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice. It also aims to harmonise the interpretation of the Code across the medical technology industry with the goals of greater consistency and transparency in industry behaviour.
