IPCAA is able to play a major role in promoting awareness and understanding of regulatory code conditions, both within the healthcare industry, and also to other stakeholders such as meetings planners, medical associations, PCOs, DMCs, etc.

A selection of other healthcare industry associations’ codes is also available there and both sets of information are regularly reviewed and updated as a service to members.
