Please note that the AdvaMed Code of Ethics and BD policies prohibit the giving of branded promotional items to Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) in the United States. We can only provide items to HCPs in the U.S. if they benefit patients or serve a genuine educational function. The definition of HCP is very broad and includes most representatives of BD customers – any person who has any potential influence over a decision to purchase BD products or services. We may be required to report the value of any items provided under transparency laws. If you have questions about BD’s policies in this area, please contact the Ethics & Compliance team.
