PANAMA CITY, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ACI is proud to produce the Third Latin American Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Compliance Congress in partnership with the Latin American Ethics & Compliance Network on August 23-25, 2016 at the Hilton in Panama City. This biennial event draws 250+ compliance professionals from life sciences companies, medical and patient organizations from across Latin America to address challenges and opportunities in compliance faced by multinationals in the region.
With recent exponential growth in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors across Latin America, policies and regulations are continually stretched to meet growing concerns in corruption, bribery and transparency. With speakers ranging from C-Suite regional and global compliance executives to senior Government officials and the heads of key Latin American ethics and transparency organizations, the 2016 Congress will again tackle compliance issues directly. Pairing a combination of keynote addresses, plenary panel discussions, practical breakout sessions and executive roundtables, attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Benchmark with Chief Compliance Officers and industry leaders
- Update compliance programs to align with the latest local codes and regulations
- Hear directly from the leadership of key pharmaceutical and medical device regulatory associations
- Engage in solutions-based working groups to address key industry challenges and gather market-specific intelligence
- Network with your counterparts throughout Latin America
Top compliance professionals from Sanofi, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Novartis, Sandoz, Brystol Meyers Squibb, Stryker and many other will be speaking. A past attendee from Medtronic said, "This is an amazing initiative and event… creating an important forum for industries and stakeholders from the sector to share their knowledge and best practices about topics that are really important for the sustainable grow of the market and access to patients on the best therapies and care they need."
Staffed by industry specialists, lawyers and other professionals, American Conference Institute operates as a think tank, monitoring trends and developments in all major industry sectors, the law, and public policy, with a view to providing information on the leading edge.
Latin American Ethics and Compliance Network is an ad hoc, voluntary group of Latin American pharmaceutical, medical device and other life sciences company compliance professionals and legal counsel who meet quarterly to discuss legal and compliance issues and best practices trying to raise ethical standards.
