International developments on complianceSession Regulatorisches und praktische Lösungen
„There is no right way doing a wrong thing”. Especially in the healthcare sector, the general public, competitors and prosecutors are expecting compliance with high standards to prevent the violation of applicable laws and regulations. Therefore, medical device companies need to have a professional set-up and organizational structures in place and to create transparency to the general public.
The applicable rules for European medtech companies have recently been tightened by the MedTech Europe Code of Business and by new antibribery criminal regulations in Germany. These changes and the related greater attention of the prosecutors to this topic require an update of the companies’ knowledge and a review and update on internal compliance handbooks, guidelines and cooperation with HCP/HCO.
The talk is giving an update to the most recent developments, an overview on the content and the changes based on the MedTech Europe Code of Business and examples currently discussed (e.g., invitation to trainings, hospitality, rebates, pay-per-use-models etc.).
