Engage in evidence-based practitioner education

Join respected Australian clinician, researcher and regs nerd Fiona Wing, as she explores the important principles and regulatory foundations that are essential for practitioners to know.

Fiona will provide an engaging overview of the Australian regs environment as it pertains to practitioners and listed medicines. She will answer frequently asked questions, including questions from our pracs, provided through the DFH Health Educators (e.g. sugar, sulphites, PEA warnings, excipients, etc.)

Please ask your questions anytime – including when you register for the webinar.

  • Gain a broad understanding of the current Australian regs environment
  • Understand the “why” behind the recent legislative changes that have affected Complementary Medicines
  • Learn about TGO92 labelling legislation and why you see more warnings on your favourite practitioner products
  • Understand the role of excipients in manufacturing, including PEGs, maltodextrin, sugars and sulphites
  • Overview of product manufacturing and why it is important to choose AUSTL products for your dispensary

Building a foundation of trust and quality

Have you ever wondered what goes into manufacturing complementary medicines in Australia?

Australia has one of the strictest regulatory requirements in the world regarding manufacturing supplements, resulting in high-quality products for you and your patients.

In Australia, the Therapeutic Goods Association oversees the manufacture of complementary medicines (supplements). They ensure the products you prescribe to your patients meet strict quality standards.

Learn about the labelling requirements, why you see specific warnings on labels, and what they mean. Gain an understanding of what goes into manufacturing a product.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is part of the Australian Government Department of Health and regulates therapeutic goods, including prescription medicines, vaccines, sunscreens, vitamins and minerals, medical devices, and blood and blood products.

Almost any product for which therapeutic claims are made must be entered in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) before it can be supplied in Australia.
