What is Ethical MedTech Conference Vetting System?
Ethical MedTech Conference Vetting System is an independent entity that 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 provide financial support to such events in the form of educational grants or commercial activities (booths, advertising, satellite symposium). CVS aims to simplify and centralize decision-making for MedTech 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 harmonize the interpretation of the Codes across the medical technology industry with the goals of greater consistency and transparency in industry behavior.
