749: We are looking to develop a corporate email that would be sent by the reps to outline the opportunity to communicate virtually with them. The layout would be corporate branded with no mention of any brands. The content simply outlines the benefits of a virtual call and how to connect/steps to make a video call. Would this type of information be exempt from PAAB review?


  • An unbranded message encouraging HCPs to reach out to reps virtually, with no additional message about therapeutic areas, brands, or services, could be considered exempt. However, there are ways to render this type of message subject to the code (e.g. corporate tagline, brand mention, service claims, therapeutic claims etc.). As such, we recommend submitting for a formal exemption review.
