New MTAA Code of Practice revealed

Health Industry Hub | November 25, 2019 |

An updated Medical Technology Industry Code of Practice was approved at the MTAA Annual General Meeting last week to ensure ongoing ethical practice in the medical devices industry.

The Medical Technology Association of Australia’s (MTAA) Code of Practice (the Code) is mandatory for member companies and sets high standards for ethical interactions with healthcare professionals and healthcare providers.

The Code ensures that decisions on selection and use of products by clinicians, or hospital purchasing departments, are based on the quality and suitability of the product, not on inducements (perceived or otherwise) paid to decision-makers and influencers.

Updates in the 11th edition of the MTAA Code of Practice include:

  • A requirement for Code training to be completed by new employees within three months of commencing employment
  • Amendments to ensure the complaints process is simplified and that any party involved in a complaint has a clear understanding of the process and what is required of them.
  • Amendments to ensure alignment with the requirements of the recent Commonwealth Whistle-blower legislation.
