In joint providership, who needs to be included in the written agreement for commercial support and what is the recommended timeline?

The expectations of the ACCME are that:

  • Written agreements for commercial support will include the accredited provider and commercial supporter.
  • These agreements will also include the name of the joint provider or third party who will receive/disburse the funds.
  • The execution and agreement must be by both the accredited provider and ineligible company who provides the commercial support.  Including the joint provider/third party is fine, but they are not in a position to execute or agree in place of the accredited provider.
  • Written agreements of this nature must be executed before the activity takes place.
