Hi All,

 

I have a client who is pharma regulatory service provider  in India. His services are - pharma regulatory, food 7 nutraceutical regulatory consultant, medical device registration, new drug approval service etc. 

 

Will Google allow me to run PPC ads for this type of business (target market - India)? Kindly help.

 

Thanks,

Kaushik

Hi Kaushik,

 

If it is about compliance support services, to be more precise, if it is about serialization regulations like DGFT, there's no problem. 

 

It does not fall under Pharma Manufacturer policies.  You should be good to go.

 

Thanks

You can not run campaign of given service which you have mention in your question. For targeting India, Only Pharmaceutical manufacturers can promote over-the-counter medicine. And it must be necessary that advertiser must be certified for Pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Apply for certification to advertise with Google - https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176031#apply

And Go through the Google Adword Policy for Medicines and healthcare

There's no problem at all. I have run such campaigns for long.  A consultant is not a manufacturer. Had the confirmation from Support Team as well.

@Ratan-Jha is correct here. You are  promoting a regultory consultancy, not  pharmaceutical  products  or OTC products.

In terms of the AdWords Policy - it is allowed.
