What’s the ACCME’s definition of commercial interest?

The definition reads: “A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.”

The definition was revised in 2007— so make sure you are using the current definition in all policies and record-keeping, as failure to abide by the full definition could lead to many noncompliance findings in the criterion for the ACCME’s Standards for Commercial Support.
