e4ethics 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 Compliance Panel is composed of three members:
- Arthur Muratyan, Chairman of the Compliance Panel. Lawyer, former Head of Legal Corporate and Global Compliance Officer at SANOFI, Secretary General of ETHICS (International Society of Healthcare Ethics and Compliance Professionals), member of the Board of Directors of the French Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce, Paris, France.
- David Horne, former EDMA Executive Committee member, President of BIVDA (the British In Vitro Diagnostics Association).
- Jean-Claude Najar, 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).
The Compliance Panel oversees both e4ethics and the Conference Vetting System platforms, and the day-to-day management on which neither the EFPIA Secretariat/Members nor the MedTech Europe Secretariat/Members have a say.
If the Compliance panel provides guidance and interpretation of the MedTech Europe Code’s provisions, it does not provide such services to EFPIA members.
For guidance and disputes relating to the EFPIA Code of Practice, EFPIA members shall refer to the EFPIA procedural requirements.
