Pharmaceutical products include prescription and non-prescription (over-the-counter, OTC) drugs, as well as hand sanitizers, disinfectants (for contact lenses and surfaces), and some sunscreens.

Training and Inspections
All staff managing regulated products must be trained to ensure the products they handle are safe and of high quality, and many regulators have the right to inspect health product facilities for compliance.
