The Conference Vetting System (CVS) is a centralized decision-making system that encourages transparency and consistency in medical education events. It is an independently managed system which reviews the compliance of third-party educational events with MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice to determine the appropriateness for companies which are members of MedTech Europe to provide financial support to such events in the form of educational grants or commercial activities, such as exhibits, advertising, or symposia.  

Members of MedTech Europe cannot provide support to an event that has not been positively assessed by CVS.
