Swedish to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / Type of product
Swedish term or phrase: fri handelsvara
Context:
För att kunna sälja produkten som en fri handelsvara såldes den under namnet A och O.
Is this simply an OTC (over the counter) product?
Don Spade
English translation:unrestricted goods
Explanation:
OTC is receptfri - see reference:
"Svensk handel räknar med att priserna faller om de receptfria läkemedlen blir en fri handelsvara, och.."

I think the translation could be something like unrestricted goods, as sales of pharmaceuticals in Sweden are only carried out through state outlets - no popping out to the supermarket to get some asprin and no private chemists!
