Disclosing relationships

IQWiG's assessments are professionally independent. External experts participating in IQWiG's assessments are therefore obliged to disclose contacts (particularly with industry).

Information to be disclosed

  • paid and voluntary work
  • advisory activities
  • financial support received for scientific activities and patent applications
  • fees received
  • other financial or monetary benefits
  • the possession of shares, warrants or other business shares, and
  • any other circumstances which, from the point of view of an unbiased observer, may be considered a conflict of interest

The disclosure obligation applies to

  • work as an external expert on an IQWiG product
  • work as a medical advisor (e.g. on an early benefit assessment, on an assessment of the potential of a non-drug intervention or on a new examination and treatment method with high-risk medical devices)
