Conference Vetting System


The Conference Vetting System falls within the supervisory remit of the MedTech Europe Compliance Panel, whose task is to ensure the impartiality, independence, competence, and integrity of the decision-making process and to prevent conflicts of interest.

The MedTech Europe Compliance Panel is composed of three members:

  • Jean-Claude Najar, Chairman of the Compliance Panel, retired lawyer (Coudert Frères, Curtis Mallet-Prevost Colt & Mosle, Lazareff Le Bars); former General Counsel and head of compliance of GE Medical Systems EMEA, of GE Oil & Gas, and former Senior Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer of GE Capital EMEA; member of ETHICS (International Society of Healthcare Compliance & Ethics Professionals).
  • Susanne Logstrup, Member of the Compliance Panel.
  • Willy Vanbuggenhout, Member of the Compliance Panel.

The Compliance Panel oversees both the Conference Vetting System and e4ethics platforms, and the day-to-day management, on which neither the EFPIA Secretariat/Members nor the MedTech Europe Secretariat/Members have a say.
