Due to the imminent implementation of the new section 299a/b of the German Criminal Code companies in the healthcare sector will have to be prepared for major changes in the field of compliance. Section 299a/b of the German Criminal Code will make it a punishable offence for a healthcare professional to accept a benefit as consideration for unfairly preferring the benefactor with regard to the supply or the prescription of drugs and medical devices or with regard to the referral of patients or of examination material. The same applies if the healthcare professional accepts an advantage as consideration for the infringement of his professional duties with regard to the supply or the prescription of drugs and medical devices or with regard to the referral of patients or of examination material. Not only physicians are possible offenders but also other healthcare professionals like nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, psychologists etc. The offence will be punished with a fine or imprisonment for up to 3 years, in particularly serious cases 3 months up to 5 years.
During this seminar, we will adress the following issues and provide you with pragmatic solutions
• Implications of the FSA disclosure obligations in the context of section 299a StGB-E
• Crossborder transfers of values
