About the ARTG

The publicly accessible version of the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) is the reference database of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). It provides information on therapeutic goods that can be supplied in Australia.

Please note: the ARTG is a record of the contents and classification details of therapeutic goods. It is not intended to provide guidance, advice or recommendations on those goods.

If a therapeutic good is not entered on the ARTG, it cannot be supplied in Australia. There are special circumstances where individuals can access unapproved therapeutic goods. For more information see: Access to unapproved products.

You can search the ARTG for both medicines and medical devices.

Enter your search term into the search box on the TGA website. You can search using:

  • the product name
  • licence details
  • sponsor details
  • active ingredient names
  • the ARTG identifier number.
