CAP/BCAP amend medicines sections of Codes
The most notable change is to the BCAP rule prohibiting services offering to prescribe or treat remotely. The growth of professional online services means that an absolute ban on them advertising on TV and radio no longer seems proportionate. Advertisers will now be allowed to advertise provided that they can demonstrate they have suitable credentials, for example, evidence of relevant professional expertise or qualifications.
The other changes in the CAP and BCAP Codes are technical and intended to bring the Codes up to date with developments in the underlying statutory framework.
