591 - 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



  • Hi, I'm sending this request for clarification on the new PAAB code: section 3.1.6 of the new code states: 3.1.6 Footnotes in close proximity may be used to augment information presented in the body copy. Information that is important for a clear and accurate understanding of a product claim must not be relegated to a footnote. Example - an indication or dosage that is limited or that is restricted to a specific group of patients. compared to the previous code which states: 3.1.6 Footnotes in close proximity may be used to augment information presented in the body copy. Information that is important for a clear and accurate understanding of the indications or dosage of a product must not be relegated to a footnote. Example - an indication or dosage that is limited or that is restricted to a specific group of patients. can you please clarifiy the implications or give examples on how the new point 3.1.6 differs from the old one? thank You!
