The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has stated that effective 1st February 2021, its advertisement approval statement will change from “This Advertisement has been vetted and approved by the FDA” to “This Advert is FDA Approved”.

It has therefore directed all new applicants who wish to advertise their products in the electronic and print media to take note and make the necessary amendments.

“The FDA would like to take this opportunity to remind all its clients that per Sections 100 (2) and 114(1) of the Public Health Act, 2012 (Act 851), it is an offence to advertise any FDA regulated product in the media, unless the advertisement has been approved by the Authority,” FDA added.
