Fully online events are out of scope of the MedTech Europe Conference Vetting System, but the SA Heart Congress 20201 has been submitted under virtual events into the CVS / e4ethics platform anyway.

Virtual events are not assessed as “regular events”, and thus not receive a CVS “assessment decision”. ETHICAL MEDTECH only make sure these events are really 100% virtual. When a party submits any fully virtual event into CVS, after verification, ETHICAL MEDTECH allows for the event to be published in the official calendar, keeping the congress visible. This is not a “compliance or non-compliance” decision. There is a dedicated category for “virtual event” labelled in yellow in the official calendar. It is up to each and every company to sponsor or not the event according to their internal guidelines.
