What is an HMCC Certificate?


HMCC, meetings
HMCC topics include cross-border healthcare compliance, industry trends, global regulations, and compliance, codes, laws and mandates.

The Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate (HMCC) program, administered by Meeting Professionals International, helps planners and suppliers navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment.

HMCC topics including cross-border healthcare compliance, industry trends, global regulations, compliance, codes, laws and mandates will be covered. The program does not have a test and there is no “pass/fail.” The focus is on education of current compliance facts and information.

The program is worth 4 clock hours and after completing a four-hour training course, participants receive a certificate of achievement and hold the designation for two years. MPI requires all current HMCC holders to attend a refresh webinar at the two-year anniversary of their class date.

Many of the public programs take place in tandem with industry events where additional pricing levels are offered. The next one will be held Monday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at IMEX Frankfurt in Hall 8. The cost to attend is $499 for MPI members and $699 for non-members. An HMCC program is also available at MPI’s World Education Congress, being held Monday, June 19 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
