Following a review by the TGA, complementary medicines can be cancelled from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods. These cancellations are made by the Secretary under section 30 of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.

Where other actions are taken in relation to safety, a link to the TGA's safety alert will be included in the database under 'Further information'.

The reasons for a cancellation are stated in the database below under 'Grounds for cancellation'.
