Why will the ACCME not allow commercial interests to act as joint providers? (SCS 1.2)

Last Revised: 
February 12, 2014

Joint providers are expected to routinely have a role in making decisions about the elements of the planning process specified in SCS 1.1. Since these decisions must be "made free of the control of a commercial interest" as per SCS 1.1, the joint provider cannot be a commercial interest. For further information on this topic, please click here to view the ACCME policy on joint providership.
