Submission to TGA proposed therapeutic goods advertising code guidance


4 October 2018

The Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA) sought further stakeholder feedback on the proposed ‘Therapeutic goods advertising code’.

The RACGP previously provided feedback on this issue to the Senate Inquiry into the Therapeutic Goods Amendment (2017 Measures No.1) Bill 2017 and Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Amendment Bill 2017, and during this draft’s initial consultation phase.

The RACGP reiterated its concerns that consumers are not provided with accurate information when purchasing complementary and alternative medicines; and that the code should also cover food and other products.
