Products Not Covered

The following products are excluded from the Code:

MEDICINES

MEDICINAL PRODUCTS

VETERINARY PRODUCTS

Medicines and medicinal products are already covered by the ABPI Code and to include them in the SDMA Code would serve no purpose.

The veterinary market is very different to the human healthcare market. Because of these differences the Code could not be fairly applied.
