65 - Is it necessary to include "Product Monograph available on request" on a direct mail or leave-behind that advises doctors of a drug now being covered on provincial formulary for a specific indication? No claims other than "Brand X now covered on Formulary y for z" (will have the exact wording from the provincial formulary). Understand that fair balance copy needs to be included and this will be submitted to PAAB.

  • With the understanding that the fair balance copy already appears on the piece (and the piece submitted to PAAB for review), it would not be necessary to include the statement. Please note that prescribing information (PI) would also be required to accompany this piece as per PAAB Code s7.2 & 7.3.
