However, if the logistics, proximity, circumstance or other, the chosen location happens to be of a tourist nature or abroad, companies must ensure that the event’s agenda is focused on scientific, technical or training purposes.

StGB

The StGB does not provide specific rules with regard to restrictions on event locations since this has to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

However, the following general principles shall be considered for any kind of hospitality offered by pharmaceutical companies engaging or interacting with HCPs:

  • Hospitality shall be "socially adequate" ("sozialadäquat") and improper advantage must not be granted. In order to assess whether specific hospitality is socially adequate the overall context of the business relationship or cooperation shall be considered;
  • Hospitality shall not intend to or improperly influence the HCPs;
  • Hospitality to spouses is generally not permitted (only in exceptional cases);
  • Cash or cash equivalents (e.g. dinner vouchers) are strictly prohibited;
  • There shall not be a temporal link between the hospitality and a business decision of the HCPs or its employer;
  • The offering (and granting) of hospitality shall be fully transparent and documented;
  • The manner of the hospitality must not violate internal policies of the employer of the HCPs.

Special care needs to be taken when interacting with public officials. The term public official is interpreted in a very broad sense under German Criminal law and HCP employed by hospitals may be qualified as public officials (e.g. physicians at university hospitals).

The benchmark regarding hospitality offered or granted to HCPs who qualify as public officials is significantly stricter under German Criminal Law than for other HCPs. In case of hospitality for public officials, it is therefore recommended to obtain the prior approval of the respective employer.

Meetings at venues outside the UK are not necessarily unacceptable. There have, however, to be valid and clear reasons for holding meetings at such venues. These are that most of the invitees are from outside the UK and, given their countries of origin, it makes greater logistical sense to hold the meeting outside the UK, or given the location of the relevant resource or expertise that is the object or subject of the meeting, it makes greater logistical sense to hold the meeting outside the UK. 

As a general point to note (which shall be relevant to all entries in this table for the United Kingdom), it is advised that HCPs "refuse all but the most trivial gifts, favours or hospitality, if accepting them could be interpreted as an attempt to gain preferential treatment or would contravene your professional code of practice".

Federal Law & Implementing Regulations, & Government-Issued Guidance: The laws and regulations do not specifically enumerate or define "appropriate" versus "inappropriate" venues, but enforcement action and settlement history show that selection is likely to impact the government’s perception of potential intent to induce or reward. In addition, the HHS-OIG Guidance states generally, with respect to entertainment, recreation, travel, meals, gifts, gratuities, and other business courtesies that the AKS should be considered and that "compliance with the PhRMA Code with respect to these arrangements should substantially reduce a manufacturer's risk." 68 Fed. Reg. 23,721, 23,738 (May 5, 2003). Other guidance may discuss the appropriateness or inappropriateness of venues for certain HCP interactions (e.g., OIG Special Fraud Alert on Speaker Programs provides that speaker programs held at venues that are not conducive to the exchange of educational information, such as golf courses, wineries, and sports stadiums, would be suspect). 

State Laws & Implementing Regulations:  Several state laws reflect an expectation of reasonable and appropriate event locations (for example, New Jersey in reference to venues and circumstances conducive to bona fide services; other states through incorporation of the PhRMA and/or AdvaMed Codes). 

Industry Codes of Conduct: The PhRMA Code and AdvaMed Code address restrictions regarding event venues.  For example, the PhRMA Code states that for consulting arrangements with HCPs the venue and circumstance of meetings with consultants must be conducive to the primary focus of the meeting, and resorts are specifically not appropriate venues.  The AdvaMed Code states that companies should not select a setting because of its entertainment or recreational facilities (e.g., resorts in geographic locations renowned primarily as seasonal vacation destinations).
