Disclosure information for planner, speakers, and participants.

Commercial bias
Content or format in a CME activity or its related materials that promotes the products or
business lines of an ineligible company. As described in the Standards for Integrity and
Independence in Accredited Continuing Education, providers are responsible for protecting
learners from commercial bias and marketing. In addition to preventing influence from ineligible
companies, the Standards prohibit faculty from actively promoting or selling products or
services that serve their professional or financial interests.

Commercial interest
See ineligible company.

Commercial support
Financial or in-kind support from an ACCME-defined ineligible company that is used to pay all or
part of the costs of a CME activity. The requirements for receiving and managing commercial
support are explained in the ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited
Continuing Education, specifically Standard 4: Manage Commercial Support Appropriately.

Financial relationships
Accredited providers must collect information from all planners, faculty, and others in control of
educational content about all their financial relationships with ineligible companies within the
prior 24 months. There is no minimum financial threshold; individuals must disclose all financial
relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies. Individuals must disclose
financial relationships with ineligible companies regardless of their view of the relevance of the
relationship to the education. See also relevant financial relationships.

Ineligible Company aka Commercial Interest
Companies that are ineligible to be accredited in the ACCME System (ineligible companies) are
those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing
healthcare products used by or on patients.

Relevant financial relationships
As defined in the Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing
Education, specifically, Standard 3: Identify, Mitigate, and Disclose Relevant Financial
Relationships, relevant financial relationships are financial relationships of any amount with
ineligible companies if the educational content is related to the business lines or products of
the ineligible company. Providers are required to collect information from all those individuals
in control of educational content about all of their financial relationships with ineligible
companies within the prior 24 months. The provider is then responsible for determining which
relationships are relevant.
