Medical appliances and devices

You can use Yandex.Direct to serve ads for medical products, including contact lenses, glasses, sunglasses and frames, and orthopedic products.

Your ads and landing page must meet all requirements of the law. Your ads must not, for example:

  • guarantee the positive effects, safety, effectiveness, and lack of side effects of the device

  • target minors

  • present the results of research as proof of the device's effectiveness, as well as the use of research results as a direct recommendation of its use

  • present the advertised object as non-medical

  • contain comparisions to other medical products with the purpose of enhancing the effect of the ad

  • contain references to specific cases of people recovering or their health improving as a result of using the medical device

  • contain links to therapeutic effects regarding diseases that are resistant or difficult to treat

  • give the impression that it is necessary to contact a doctor

  • give healthy people the impression that use of the device is necessary

Text ads will automatically have a warning added: “Contraindications apply. Consult a doctor”. The text of the warning does not depend on the content of the specific ad and cannot be changed. You must add this warning to image ads yourself. More information about warnings.

Your ads must correspond to the legislation of the countries where you want to serve them.

According to the law “On advertising” and Yandex placement policy, certain documents must be provided.

When should documents be sent?

You can send documents at any time after your ads have been sent for moderation. If ads are rejected due to an absence of required documents, then they will be re-evaluated after documents are submitted. If your ads pass moderation, they will be accepted for display. If additional information is required, we will contact you.
