FDA regulates advertising and promotion material as labeling. The legal definition of labeling covers just about anything that explicitly or implicitly conveys a message intended to affect a person’s behavior and decision outcomes. How FDA applies its legal tenants of false and misleading information or variations on that theme requires continual updating by FDA and constant re-evaluation by industry. Now the regulatory landscape involves other federal agencies and academic principles in psychology. It has become very complicated and will prove very costly if you knowingly or unknowing walk into one of FDA’s legal snares. This webinar will bring attendees up to speed so you are clearer about what is a problem, what is not a problem and what becomes a risk laden judgment call.
Why Should You Attend:
The vehicle for communication has evolved dramatically over the past 100 years and continues to evolve at a rate faster than one can anticipate at times. Through this webinar, participants will learn how to navigate FDA’s interpretations and expectations about a firm’s marketing practices through social media. Applying a new guidance and related guidance documents becomes a new test of the FDA’s legal boundaries and enforcement options. The agency now applies the principles of cognitive psychology to aid in its determination of what a message really conveys and whether it ultimately violates the law.
This webinar will provide insight on how to manage your marketing activity and gauge what regulatory risks your business is willing to accept when it uses social media. Attendees will see how a firm’s regulatory profile requires cooperation between marketing, regulatory affairs, legal counsel, manufacturing, engineering and finance departments. They will understand that a weak link in any department leaves the entire corporation vulnerable to FDA enforcement. And above all, attendees will also begin to apply the boundaries the FDA uses now and understand how easy it is to promote yourself into a corner.
