PAGB’s Packaging Code for Medicines covers the statutory and non-statutory information required and allowed on OTC medicines packaging and reflects the latest MHRA guidance. Don’t miss the opportunity to find out what you need to know about pack design and labelling for OTC medicines.

This workshop will cover:

  • Understanding the requirements for OTC medicines labelling
  • The principles of PAGB’s Packaging Code for Medicines
  • How the P3Ex pre-approval scheme works
  • PAGB’s Notification Scheme Guidance
  • Advice and a Q&A session from the team at MHRA, who have provided practical examples to help you understand how to make a successful submission

Who should attend?

If you work in a regulatory or brand management role for OTC medicines, or if you’re a supplier/design agency working with clients in the consumer healthcare industry, this course will help you get things right first time when submitting your packaging for authorisation.


This course will run between 10am and approx. 2pm – for in person events a sandwich lunch will be provided. The workshop is delivered by members of the PAGB regulatory team and will feature special guests from MHRA’s product information quality unit. We encourage interaction and questions. You’ll receive copies of the presentations, practical examples and other useful materials to take away, and we’ll send you a certificate of attendance after the event.
