When there is commercial support there must be a written agreement that,

  • Itemizes how the Provider will use the commercial support in the development and presentation of the CME activity;
  • Itemizes the organizations involved in the activity (e.g., joint providers, education partners, managers);
  • Specifies the organizational name of the commercial interest(s) that supplied the funds;
  • Specifies what funds or in-kind services will be given by the commercial supporter to support the provider's activity;
  • and Is signed by the commercial interest and the accredited provider prior to the activity taking place.
