Remarks of CME accreditation application

CME/CPD activities organized solely by institutions currently recognized by CDSHK as ‘CME/CPD Providers’ are deemed ‘Formal College Approved Activities’ (FCAA) and do not need prior-approval. All other CME/CPD activities must seek the College’s prior-approval. The list of currently recognized ‘CME/CPD Programme Providers’ is available from the College’s website.

Application for pre-approval and accreditation of CME/CPD activities

  1. Fill-in and return the ‘CME Accreditation Application Form’ together with the following materials for processing at least two weeks before the event.
  2. Speakers’ CV or biography; event brochure and promotion materials.
  3. Detail rundown/programme of the event including lecture title, duration of opening speech/tea break/lunch breaka, etc;
  4. A cheque of HK$3,000 payable to ‘The College of Dental Surgeons of Hong Kong’ as administration fee if any commercial company is involved in supporting, sponsoring or co-organizing the event, whether or not commercial products/materials are being promoted before, during or after the event.
  5. Late or retrospective application will incur an additional administrative cost of HK$3,000, i.e. a total of HK$ 6,000 will be chargeable, or the application will not be processed.

Organizer(s) of the CME/CPD activity should note:

  1. Successful application will be issued a ‘CME Accreditation CDSHK REPLY FORM’ with the maximum accredited CME/CPD points stated. This piece of information can only be disseminated in the following format: “CDSHK(CME/CPD): X pts, DCHK(CPD): X pts”. Logos of CDSHK and/or HKAM cannot be used without prior approval.
  2. When there are changes in the event/programme (date, venue, speakers, lecture title/duration, etc), the updated information must be submitted two weeks before the event for reassessment of accreditation. Deviation of the programme from the information submitted will be deemed non-compliance to the Guidelines.
  3. It is the responsibility of the organizer(s) of the activity to make sure that all the attending participants and Speakers/Chairpersons have filled-in and signed on the respective forms [CME/CPD Programme Attendance Form (For Participants) and CME/CPD Programme Attendance Form (For Speakers and Chairpersons)] and return them to the College Secretariat by post, e-mail, or fax within two weeks after the event. CME/CPD points will only be credited when ALL the required information is entered and legible. Dishonesty in entering the information on the Forms is considered a serious fraud and will be reported to the College Council.
  4. Non-compliance of the Guidelines and/or provision of incomplete/incorrect/misleading information along with the application may result in revision/invalidation of the approved CME/CPD points, rejection of future application, and/or removal from the list of College recognized ‘CME/CPD Provider’.
