Dear Health and Pharmaceuticals Committee members,
On November 7, 2018, an official presentation was held on the results of the cooperation between professional associations and the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia. This was followed by the signing of the Recommendations for legislative compliance regarding OTC (over-the-counter) drug advertising by professional associations and manufacturers. 
The aim of the document was to develop a unified practice for preparation of advertising materials and to create guidelines for pharmaceutical companies when working on advertising products.
Please find the document, both in Russian (official version) and in English (unofficial translation ) attached for your reference.
