  • DTCRx ads are not subject to mandatory review within the requirements of the PAAB Code of Advertising Acceptance. If the sponsor requests it, PAAB will give an opinion on DTCRx ads based on the Health Canada policy document "The Distinction Between Advertising and Other Activities". The opinion service is endorsed by Health Canada and Innovative Medicines Canada. If you choose to send a DTCRx project for PAAB opinion we would require seeing the layout, graphics and words to be used.
