CCC unveils new compliance portal
Responding to the billions of dollars in industry fines paid under the False Claims Act, the Center for Communication Compliance (CCC) launched a new online compliance portal.
Chaired by former FDA employee Wayne Pines, the CCC portal offers regulatory compliance tests (RCTs) online. Current RCTs available on the website range from $100 for an “advanced test” to $300 for a “basic test.” PR RCTs are available now, with advertising and promotional med ed launching in September, according to CCC president and founder Ilyssa Levins. Participants scoring higher than 80% on the test will receive a certificate of “regulatory compliance competency.”
Weber Shandwick and Porter Novelli both committed to certifying their healthcare staff in all US offices, according to a statement. Healthcare professionals can purchase consulting packages for reviewing campaign materials, Levins noted.
