A new version of the ABHI Code of Ethical Business Practice has been published. ABHI states that the major change in the new Code:

will be the ending of direct sponsorship of healthcare professionals attending third-party educational events and this will apply from 1st January 2018. From 2019 companies will be expected to publish details of educational grants awarded to healthcare organisations (HCOs) via a Medtech Europe portal that is currently under construction.

The new Code incorporates changes introduced by the MedTech Europe code. It will be implemented in stages from 1st January 2017.
