MedTech Europe is the European trade association representing the medical technology industries, from diagnosis to cure. It represents Diagnostics and Medical Devices manufacturers operating in Europe.

At MedTech Europe all aspects of the MedTech industry’s relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) are regulated by the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice, which came into force on January 1, 2017.

This Code has undergone an important change, which is applicable as of January 1, 2018: independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by funds through Educational Grant. This will imply a discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs.

Educational Grants supplied to support HCP participation to Third Party Organised Events, such as Global Spine Congress, will be provided to Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) or Professional Congress Organisers (PCOs).
