Pharmaceutical Compliance Forum:

The International Pharma Congress is sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Compliance Forum (PCF), www.PharmaComplianceForum.org, a coalition of senior compliance professionals and legal counsel from more than 50 of the largest research-based pharmaceutical manufacturers. The PCF was founded in early-1999 by compliance professionals from the pharmaceutical industry to promote effective corporate compliance programs. The organization is open to others in the industry and has more than doubled in membership since its founding. The members meet twice a year, for two days, focusing on open and informal sharing of compliance information, best practices, and current developments in the field, and sponsor a three-day compliance congress each Fall.

Health Care Compliance Certification Program of Seton Hall Law School:

The Health Care Compliance Certification Program is a multi-day educational program for compliance professionals and lawyers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries that takes place at Seton Hall Law School in Newark, NJ. The Program addresses the issues faced by the pharmaceutical and device industries in complying with such standards as the OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, the PhRMA Code, and the AdvaMed Revised Code of Ethics. The program immerses attendees in the statutes, regulations, and other guidance that comprise the body of law known as "fraud and abuse law," as well as FDA law, so they can understand the legal underpinnings of the compliance programs that they enforce.
