BRUSSELS, Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maetrics, a leading global life sciences consulting firm, will be attending the upcoming European MedTech Forum conference in Brussels, Belgium during its exhibition days, October 16 and 17, 2014. At the conference, Maetrics will present a panel discussion, to be moderated by its President, Mark B. Hassenplug, on October 16 at 12:00, entitled, "The Hidden Cost of Non-Compliance – Proactivity or Reactivity: The Choice and Cost Are Yours." Hassenplug and panelists are all active in current compliance related activities around the world.
The panel will include: Edward A. Tomlinson, Managing Director at Maetrics and Alison Dennis, Partner, Head of Life Sciences & Healthcare at Fieldfisher. They will discuss the important implications of proactively identifying and addressing compliance matters within a company in comparison to the issues of remaining reactive, as well as which decision may be the most cost effective for ones business in the long run.
Said Hassenplug, "Typically, many companies operate with just enough regulatory compliance oversight until an adverse regulatory compliance event occurs. Compared to a proactive program, the cost of reacting to an adverse event can be extremely high as regulatory bodies impose monetary fines and other restrictions to say nothing of the costs associated with remediation of the issues encountered."
The Maetrics panel will discuss how compliance issues can have a significant impact on transaction value, capital and operating expenditures, as well as on public and professional perception of the brand.
