The FDA has jurisdiction over the labeling and advertising of prescription drugs and medical devices. On the other hand, the responsibility for regulating advertising for non-prescription or over-the-counter drugs falls under another federal agency.

In the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, companies and their representatives often distribute scientific or medical publications containing information on off-label uses (unapproved uses) of FDA approved or cleared drugs or medical devices to healthcare professionals or entities. However, it is important for firms to comply with the FDA's guidelines on how to communicate off-label uses to healthcare professionals.

This webinar is designed to provide insight into the FDA's current policy on the dissemination of scientific or medical references that include information on off-label uses of approved or cleared medical products.
