Global Distributor Compliance Toolkit

OVERVIEW

To empower medical technology distributors with the tools and resources needed to build and implement an effective compliance program, AdvaMed and its member companies created a comprehensive Global Distributor Compliance Toolkit ("GDC Toolkit") for use by all organizations in the global medical technology supply chain. the GDC Toolkit’s 50+ compliance assets include training slides, compliance forms, communication templates, infographics and more, spread across the six Key Areas of Global Compliance, and offered in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese. The GDC Toolkit is highly customizable and neutrally branded. We encourage you to adapt this Toolkit as your own.

You may access and download the full PDF package for all 117 pages of content in the available languages below:

  • Global Distributor Compliance Toolkit - English
  • 全球分销商 合规工具包 - Chinese
  • グローバル ディストリビューター コンプライアンス ツールキット - Japanese
  • Kit de Ferramentas de Conformidade para Distribuidores Globais - Portuguese
  • Herramientas de Cumplimiento Normativo para Distribuidores Globales - Spanish

You may access and download specific assets and additional file formats via the hyperlinks in the below sections. Non-English homepages are being developed to offer the GDC Toolkit's translated assets individually as we have for the English versions in the below sections. 

The Toolkit is an evolving set of material which we aim to update and refine based on user feedback. Submit your thoughts here to contribute to the future of Global Compliance. Any and all feedback, insights, questions and comments are well welcome.
