Moves to tackle false claims about medicines

Misleading adverts could become criminal offence

Making false or misleading claims about medicinal products could become a criminal offence in the Isle of Man.

Tynwald members will this month be asked to approve measures in part three of the Medicines Act 2003, which would regulate the advertising of such items.

The rules would apply to products sold in pharmacies and retail outlets, as well as those available on prescription.

Health and Social Care Minister David Ashford says the measures aim to protect everyone.
