Support from pharmaceutical partners helps make this event possible. As such, it is important that we
comply with the various codes and directives relating to the manufacturing, distribution, and marketing of pharmaceutical products. The Human Medicine Regulations 2012, (clauses 294-300) and the European Union directive (2001/83/EC, article 86) provide guidelines relating to medicinal products for human use. Within these guidelines is the restriction that access to pharmaceutical product marketing activities must be limited to only those participants licensed / authorized to prescribe or supply medicinal products.

All participants, with the exception of the exhibitors, are asked the following question during registration: Are you licensed / authorized to prescribe or supply prescription only medicines?
