This webinar will help you understand in detail the application of FDA’s guidance on the use of social media in presenting and promoting information about drug products and medical devices subject to FDA regulation. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate strategy, policies and procedures to ensure compliance.

There are three guidance documents issued in 2014 by FDA to guide industry in the use of social media. We will cover all three guidances and provide insight as to how to interpret and implement them. These guidance documents will help you navigate the use of social media to assure compliance.

The guidance documents relate to content, format and liability. It is important to know under what circumstances a company is responsible for social media posts about its branded products. We will also cover the role of “influencers” and how FDA is studying how these impact consumers.

We will also take a look at social media regulations from various areas of the world, where countries have implemented guidelines and requirements similar to those by FDA in the US. Finally, we’ll discuss the role of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as it continues working with FDA to fine-tune regulations.
