74 - When a new company purchases an existing brand with existing PAAB approved marketing materials, do we need to resubmit those materials if the only changes relate to corporate ownership and the replacement PI?

  • You do not have to submit the files for a review unless the twelve month clearance period has expired. The PAAB does appreciate receiving notification that the brand has changed ownership in case we receive complaints about the advertising. Beyond the scope of the PAAB Code, you would have to respect legal requirements of declaring proper ownership on the advertising pieces.
