Does the Code address arrangements between a member and a HCP relating to the development of a new medical device for the member?

Yes. Interactions relating to product development and intellectual property would be subject to the general principle that members shall encourage ethical business practices and socially responsible industry conduct and shall not use any unlawful or unethical inducement in order to sell, lease, recommend, use, maintain or arrange for the sale, lease, or prescription of, their products.
