Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on FDA social media regulations will discuss the best practices utilized by medical device, drug and other FDA and FTC regulated industries when using social media channels, i.e., Web 2.0, like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn to promote products.

Why Should You Attend:

What are the laws and regulations that FDA and FTC regulated companies should comply with when using social media channels, i.e., Web 2.0, to promote their products? How do they assure compliance in light of the Food Drug & Cosmetic Act among other laws and regulations?

This webinar will discuss ways manufacturers of life science products are currently using social media in light of applicable laws and regulations, and recent FDA enforcement actions. Practical real-world examples and experiences will be offered. This webinar will also cover new guidance from FDA regarding how to respond to unsolicited requests for off-label information in social media outlets. The presenter will focus on strategies and tactics that companies can employ to lessen regulatory risk.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:


  • How do FDA and FTC regulations govern social media?
  • How is Web 2.0 advertising and promotion different than more standard channels like print, TV and radio?
  • What is the current regulatory environment like?
  • What is government concerned about?
  • Are the claims you are making about your products in compliance with FDA and FTC regulations?
  • Are you misbranding and/or adulterating your products because of the claims you are making or the manner you are making them?
  • Are you meeting the FDA guidance, “Responding to Unsolicited Requests for Off-Label Information About Prescription Drugs and Medical Devices”?


  • If you are using social media improperly, then you are probably violating FDA and/or FTC laws and regulations. How do you go about remedying such issues?
  • What is your exposure? The government does not care if “everyone else is doing it.” If you are violating the law, sooner or later, FDA will come knocking.
  • How the government finds out about your conduct (competitors, social media, company website, distributor conduct, etc.)
