Noncompliance

In two instances, the provider presented information to distinguish owners from employees for an ACCME-defined commercial interest whose company’s products are not sold in the United States. However, the ACCME considers ‘owners’ to be the same as ’employees’ in matters concerning independence, and neither owners nor employees are allowed to control content in CME that relates to the products/services of the commercial interest that is their employer. In addition, the ACCME does not differentiate between products sold in or outside of the U.S. as a factor in determining whether a company is defined as a commercial interest.
