Apply for CPD Approval


Guidelines for pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturer


Additional Application Information

If your application for CPD approval is on behalf of an industry sponsor (for example, 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:

  • 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 (Word, 738KB) 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 form (Word, 737KB) with your application
  • We cannot approve presentations from employees of an industry sponsor

It is important that both these forms are included with your initial application as we cannot begin to process your application without them.

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