Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA) updated EXPLANATORY GUIDANCE TO THE HEALTH PRODUCTS (ADVERTISEMENT OF SPECIFIED HEALTH PRODUCTS) REGULATIONS for Therapeutic Products (TP) Advertisement.
Minor revisions include:
– Redefining the list and terms of media forms as defined in the scope of the advertisement.
– Emphasized that advertisement relating to a TP must be factual, substantiated and aligned to information registered with the HSA. Information that has not been registered with HSA or information which may potentially or indirectly extend the usage of a TP must not be included in advertisements. Information provided in the advertisement should fall within the scope of the approved use of the TP.
