Practical Law Company

Practical Law has published the 2018 edition of its Distribution and Marketing of Drugs Global Guide, a easily accessible Q&A overview of the key legal issues involved in bringing drugs to market in 29 jurisdictions worldwide. Members of the Tilleke & Gibbins life sciences team wrote the Vietnam chapter of this year’s guide.

The Vietnam chapter provides a high-level overview of the regulatory regime for the distribution and marketing of pharmaceuticals in Vietnam. The distribution section of the guide covers pre-conditions for distribution, including marketing authorization and exceptions; licensing; distribution to consumers; and wholesale distribution. The marketing section summarizes the regulations on marketing to consumers and marketing to professionals, including the types of marketing activities that are permitted and prohibited; restrictions on advertising; and the permissibility of discounts, free samples, and sponsorships.
