138 - In your answer to Question 137, you are saying that although it goes beyond name, price & quantity, the PM (in its entirety)is not considered advertising. So is it acceptable to link the PM to the banner ad in the consumer realm?

  • No. Because the product monograph contains content which goes beyond the name, price & quantity restriction, it may not be linked to advertising (e.g. a banner ad). For the product monograph not to be considered "advertising" it must be complete/unchanged AND it must not be linked to advertising (e.g. a banner ad). Health Canada had confirmed that linking the product monograph to a banner ad in a consumer realm would contravene C.01.044 of the Food and Drugs Regulations. Please call the PAAB if you have further questions about this.
