The Medical Device Code for Ethical Marketing and Business Practice (the Code) governs interactions between suppliers and their customers, namely healthcare providers and professionals. It fosters trust in the medtech industry by creating a framework for ethical activity that protects the reputation of industry stakeholders. Each SAMED member is a signatory to the Code through membership and is responsible for appointing a compliance officer who acts as the primary liaison with SAMED and who must ensure that company staff are trained on and adhere to the Code.
In order to support Compliance Officers in their role, SAMED has developed a Compliance Officers Tool Kit with information and resource links relevant to Code training, promotion and certification. We encourage company compliance officers to save the tool kit and make use of the content as needed.
