2007/08 Compliance Better Practices Project: Final Survey, Interview Results and Polling Questions
The medical device industry has been quick to adopt, implement, and give further definition to the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) Code of Ethics and its provisions. The survey was conducted in consultation with AdvaMed and its Device and Diagnostic Compliance Group (DDCG) working group. According to the survey, 90 percent of respondents, representing 32 companies, have policies in place that address all provisions of the AdvaMed Code of Ethics. Conducted for three consecutive years, the 2007/2008 survey reports the AdvaMed Code of Ethics continues to gain notable acceptance within the medical device industry. A major update to the Code was unanimously approved by the AdvaMed Board of Directors in December 2008 and goes into effect on July 1, 2009.
