The Ethics Committee judges relevance and seriousness of secondary interest declared by holders of office or mandate in EANM. Judgement is based on detailed informations given by all officers annually using a Declaration form. Each individual member of the EC evaluates this data separately. Thereafter, potential disaccordance in judgement is discussed to obtain consent recommendation to the Board for approving or modification of the officer’s mandate. In addition the EC surveys compliance of EANM to the Code of Conduct of the Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe, for example to avoid that EANM office holders give presentations on or chair satellite symposia and meetings sponsored by industry.
