Code of Conduct and Business Principles
Wright is an AdvaMed Member and Advocate
The Advanced Medical Technology Association ("AdvaMed") is dedicated to the advancement of medical science, the improvement of patient care, and in particular to the contribution that high quality, cost-effective health care technology can make toward achieving those goals. In pursuing this mission, AdvaMed members recognize that adherence to ethical standards and compliance with applicable laws are critical to the medical device industry's ability to continue its collaboration with health care professionals.
Members encourage ethical business practices and socially responsible industry conduct related to their interactions with health care professionals. Members also respect the obligation of health care professionals to make independent decisions regarding Member products.
Consequently, AdvaMed adopted this voluntary Code of Ethics, effective January 1, 2004 and revised and restated with an effective date of July 1, 2009, to facilitate Members' ethical interactions with those individuals or entities that purchase, lease, recommend, use, arrange for the purchase or lease of, or prescribe Members' medical technology products in the United States.
Without reservation, Wright strongly endorses both the letter and spirit of the AdvaMed Code of Ethics.
Wright is a Eucomed Member and Advocate
Eucomed is an association representing the interests of European medical technology/device manufacturers. Eucomed believes that high quality, cost-effective medical technologies and related services can make a significant contribution to the safety and well being of patients and the improvement of healthcare systems.
Eucomed's members recognize that compliance with applicable laws and regulations and adherence to ethical standards are both an obligation and a critical step to the achievement of the aforementioned goals and can enhance the reputation and success of the medical technology/device industry.
This Code of Business Practice (hereinafter referred to as the "Code") is intended to provide guidance as to the minimum standards which should apply to its members' business practices in Europe and, generally, elsewhere. It is not intended to supplant or supersede national laws or regulations or other professional or other business codes (including company codes) which may apply to its members.
The associations that are members of Eucomed ensure that their respective codes of practice, if any, are compatible with the Eucomed Code of Business practice.
