Nonprescription Drugs/OTC

CPR and the Nonprescription Drug Manufacturers Association (now the Consumer Healthcare Products Association) have developed a dispute resolution commitment for companies in the nonprescription drug industry. Its purpose is to help manufacturers of over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals resolve trade dress disputes through negotiation or nonbinding mediation by a neutral third party.Under the terms of the commitment, disputing companies attempt first to resolve the dispute by negotiation, then by mediation. Mediations are conducted in accordance with the CPR Mediation Procedure. The following signers of the commitment have agreed to resolve disputes with other signers in accordance with the CPR Nonprescription Drug Industry Dispute Resolution Commitment.
