As one of the first Professional Congress Organisers in Europe, Mondial Congress & Events was recently certified as a Trusted Partner by MedTech Europe. This is to ensure the organisation of medical and scientific congresses in accordance with the new MedTech Code of Ethical Business Practice.
Medical technology is an indispensable part of various sub disciplines of medicine, providing a source of innovation and support for the medical profession worldwide. With the Ethical MedTech initiative, non-profit organisation MedTech Europe has launched a portal to foster ethical and compliance initiatives in the sector, regulating the relationships between physicians and medical professionals. This is to ensure transparency and compliance with the new MedTech Code of Ethical Business Practice, going into effect on January 1st 2018.
As part of the MedTech Ethical Charter, it is now possible for Professional Congress Organisers to be certified as Ethical MedTech Trusted Partners. After undergoing a stringent testing process, Mondial Congress & Events obtained this certification as one of the first PCOs in Europe and first PCO in Austria.
The certification serves as credible proof of familiarity with the new Code and has several advantages for organisers of congresses involving the medical technology industry. Certified PCO staff has a high level of awareness of the rules and regulations in effect as well as experience in handling Educational Grants. The PCO can also advise organisers in matters relating to location, destination, accessibility and entertainment options in line with the Code of Ethical Business Practice. This can relieve associations of many organisational tasks and promote the modernisation process of medical and scientific meetings.
