Can an accredited provider ask an ineligible company for suggestions related to topics or speakers for CME?

No. There is no reason for a CME provider to request suggestions for speakers or topics from ineligible companies, since it is unacceptable to act upon their suggestions. CME providers cannot receive guidance, either nuanced or direct, from an ineligible company on the content of the activity or on who should deliver that content. If the provider implements the suggestions of the ineligible company then this creates a situation where the independence of CME from the ineligible company is undermined. The provider must ensure that the content of and the process to develop the CME remains beyond the control of any ineligible company.
