Labelling & Promotional Review
Compelling, Compliant Information to Successfully Promote Your Product
Any activity undertaken, organized, or sponsored by a company that is intended to promote the prescription, recommendation, supply, administration, or consumption of a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical device product may be considered promotional material. Such marketing collateral can be available through various methods of communication, including ads and brochures, mailings, websites, congress materials, and presentations from spokespersons or medical representatives. This content must follow strict European Union (EU) and national guidelines relating to the promotion of medicines, such as the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) code of practice.
During every step of the product lifecycle, your product’s messaging to healthcare professionals and patients must always be clear, compelling, and fully compliant. Whether you’re developing print materials, websites, digital sales aids, or patient support materials, ProPharma has the knowledge and experience to help ensure all of your marketing materials are balanced and aligned with all regulatory and ethical codes.Talk with an Expert
