For non-prescription marketed health products, is it a requirement to include a product's DIN or NPN on an advertisement/promotional piece directed at a healthcare professional?


We would like to do an unbranded piece based on treatment guidelines. There are no Canadian treatment guidelines for this disease. Can we use a European guideline (not for a particular country but from a European society (endorsed or recognized by an authoritative medical body)? Can we use two guidelines together, the European and the US guideline? If some of the products are not authorized in the same way in Canada as recommended in the guidelines, should we not mention that use or we should clarify that is not the way that is indicated in Canada? Thank you for your help.

HI PAAB, when a drug goes from pre-NOC to NOC, is it possible to use the wording "Now Approved In Canada". Also, if this is marketed to general population, does it need PAAB approval? Thanks

Hello, We plan to create a survey to gather statistics on lifestyle habits and general knowledge of the respondents on a virus in order to use the said metrics in a promotional tool, in the vaccination field. 1000 respondents is the usual number needed to produce relevant or serious statistics. The question is: As per PAAB's guidelines, is there a minimum number of respondents needed in a survey to be able to use the statistics produced by it in promotional tools. Thank you

Hi there, I am currently creating a slide deck that the reps will use with their customers, and I am wondering how PAAB would like market research to be referenced? Is the project name, source, and date sufficient, or is there more information that PAAB requires? Thanks!

I would like to clarify the requirements for a PAAB material review in relation to a US-only promotional symposium at an international congress held in Canada. Our US colleagues would like to host a learning theatre program on a product that is approved for use in both the US and Canada. If the program is US-developed (independent of Canadian input) and presented to a US-Healthcare professionals audience only, is the material developed subject to PAAB review? A few mitigation steps would be in place: • All learning event promotional tools (such as the invitation) will state that Canadian physicians and any Canadian healthcare professionals (HCPs) will not have access to this event. • A check-in safeguard system will be set up at the entry of the event (such as checking and scanning the badges) to ensure access is only granted to US-HCPs. • A disclaimer will be included at the bottom of each slide of the presentation clearly stating that all information is based on the US prescribing information • The local internal review team will review and attest to the presence of this disclaimer before the slide deck can be used at the event. Thank you in advance.

Can you please tell us more regarding gated medical information websites. What would be considered an effective and PAAB compliant gate? Verify each HCP by License #? HCP number pattern (do we need to use specific pattern depending on the type of HCP eg: Nurses, Pharmacists, Physicians. and the province)? Thanks

If a leading pharmaceutical company provides funds for an article on adult immunization but without having any control on the content of the article, can the disclaimer at the end of the article read "brought to you by a leading pharmaceutical company" or does it have to specifically mention the name of the company that provided the necessary funding.

Hello - I understand that data exceeding the duration of the TMA is not acceptable (eg. TMA study A is 1 year in duration, new study B is 2 years in duration). However in a situation where a registration trial is designed to read out to 3 years, and the TMA only contains year 2 data, is it acceptable to include year 3 data in APS? Would this be dependent on the year 3 data being directionally consistent with the year 2 data?
