If your application for CPD approval is on behalf of an Industry Sponsor (e.g. a pharmaceutical company or a medical device manufacturer), we need additional information to help us confirm the academic independence of the event.

You’ll need to:

  • Clarify the nature of the relationship between your company and the individual speakers and list any commercial interest that the organising committee, presenters, chairs or speakers have

  • Make sure all paid speakers (and speakers with any other conflicts) have a conflict of interest slide in their presentation that shows the nature of their conflict

  • Submit an individually signed and  completed Conflict of Interest Disclosure form from each member of your  organising committee, the presenters, chairs and speakers at your event with the application form

  • The Medical Organiser cannot be an employee of an Industry Sponsor. Remember to complete and return the Medical Organiser Declaration with your application

  • We cannot approve presentations from employees of an industry sponsor


It is important that the Medical Organiser Declaration and Conflict of Interest forms are included with your initial application as we cannot begin to process your application without them


We may request copies of contracts with organising faculty members or speakers, and details of honoraria paid to them
