MCI, WGCâ€™s appointed Professional Congress Organizer, has completed the process for the MedTech Ethical Charter. This certificate ensures that MCI commits to the appropriate application of the MedTech Europe Code provisions to the educational events for which MCI seeks industryâ€™s financial support, such as the 8th World Glaucoma Congress taking place March 27-30, 2019 in Melbourne, Australia.
Each company is responsible for conducting its business in full compliance with all national and international laws and regulations that pertain to its particular industry, and that prior to their application a compliance officer has approved the specific sponsorship item(s).
