What is MedTech?
MedTech is an association of European medical device companies whose members have agreed to adhere to a self-imposed code of ethical business practice. Due to this self-regulating guideline, MedTech member companies no longer provide direct funding to healthcare professionals to attend medical congresses, but can provide educational grants through an indirect scheme.
Please note that the MedTech Code of Ethical Business Practice is a self-regulating guideline which does not supersede EU or national law. Therefore, it is only applicable to MedTech members. Companies which are not MedTech members may still provide direct sponsorship to HCP’s to the extent allowed by national law.
