Legal & Regulatory
challenges.
Our mission is clear: to improve the
understanding of laws and regulations that
most impact the compliance professionals
that make up our membership; to help
facilitate the communication and sharing of
compliance best practices; and to continue
the legacy of excellence the Alliance has held
for more than 25 years.
Clearing the path
This October, there is a real opportunity
at the 2017 Sharing Conference to gain
i n s i g h t s a b o ut t h e m o s t i m p or t a n t
compliance issues that are surfacing from
our changing culture. Together, compliance
specialists will have the opportunity to rid
themselves of obstacles that cloud the path
to a clear vision.
Our program is chock full of learning
opportunities, with more than 20 sessions
over two and a half days. Attendees will
hear from speakers representing the US
Government, the biopharma industry, the
medical device industry and the vendor
community that supports the conference.

and CMS. At the Sharing Conference,
attendees will get the opportunity to have
transparency reporting questions answered
dire c tly from CMS O p en Pay ments

of the Division of Data and Informatics
(DDI). Questions for CMS can be sent in
prior to the conference or during the Town

told us that these Town Hall sessions are
a great way to get clarification on specific
requirements while providing a platform
to aler t CMS to sp ecific chal lenges
manufacturers face when compiling federal
reports.
