Media and Events Policy

The EFP aims to be a reliable source of information for media, and journalists are welcome to cover announcements and articles.

When registering, journalists will be asked to provide a valid press card and a letter of assignment issued by recognised:

  • Journals, magazines, newspapers (trade and mainstream)
  • News agencies or newswire services
  • Broadcast media
  • Online media
  • Information officers of academic institutions, scientific societies, registered medical research charities or patient advocacy groups may request a press badge for EFP events, provided they plan to prepare and publish a report from EFP meetings. A copy of the report from previous meetings should be forwarded together with the media registration request.
  • Freelance journalists are required to submit an official letter of assignment and two by-lined medical/health/science articles recently published.
  • Companies or organisations producing publications, videos and other products intended for educational purposes (without a commercial component) may request a press badge for their editor.
  • Photographers or camera-crew members accompanying approved media representatives may obtain a press badge provided they fulfill the media registration form criteria but they will not have access to embargoed material.

The following are NOT entitled to receive a press badge but are welcome to register as regular participants:

  • Public relations agencies
  • Advertising, communications and media agencies
  • Sales and marketing representatives
  • Financial analysts
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Influencers

The EFP Press Office reserves the right to withhold approval of press registration if the applicant does not satisfy the criteria for press registration or if the media registration form is sent without the requested supporting documents.
