Public consultation: conflict-of-interest rules under the EU Health Technology Assessment Regulation

By June 4, 2024No Comments

The European Commission have launched an online public consultation on the draft implementing act on the management of conflicts of interest in Health Technology Assessments.

The draft implementing act provides rules for managing conflicts of interest of actors such as the representatives in the Member State Coordination Group and its subgroups, assessors, patients, and clinical and other experts who participate in the joint work under the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Regulation. The assessment of conflicts of interest is focused on current and past interests in the health technology developer’s industrial sector.

The HTA Regulation foresees the adoption of implementing acts, detailing the procedural rules for the different elements in the Regulation. This is the second of six acts in 2024 for which public consultations will be held. The first implementing act was adopted by the Commission on 23 May 2024.

This online consultation will be open for responses until 26 June 2024. BIVDA intends to respond to this consultation on behalf of members. Members are encouraged to provide us your feedback by 21 June EOB as to whether there is any impact of the proposed measures for your businesses, through
