According to the European Legislation (Directive 2001/83/CE), EFPIA Code (European Federation of Pharmaceuticals Industries & Associations) and local Law (Heilmittelwerbegesetz - HWG) the promotion of prescription-only medicines should be limited to those HCPs able to prescribe or dispense medicines.

The Organisers of the 14th Congress of EuGMS have done their utmost best to comply with the prevalent legislation and to keep all stakeholders participating at the Congress informed about the relevant regulations. 

Different coloured badges have been assigned to prescribers and non-prescribers to allow pharmaceutical companies to provide appropriate material during discussions with delegates in the exhibition area. 

Please note that at all entrances to the exhibition area delegates will be informed via a sign about the restriction of promoting prescription medicine.
