This guidance for advertisers applies to the current Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code 2015 but incorporates amendments to the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the Act) that came into effect on 6 March 2018, and has been further updated to provide specific information on advertising biologicals and to also include more background information on advertising requirements.

The Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (No.2) 2018 was made on 31 October 2018 to replace the 2018 Code which will come into effect on 1 January 2019. A summary of the changes is available. To assist advertisers with implementation, we have also published guidance material; Complying with the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (No. 2) 2018.

Please see our dedicated Advertising therapeutic goods section of the TGA website for details on upcoming webinars and roadshows to assist you in understanding your advertising responsibilities and being compliant with current legislation.

If you are new to therapeutic goods regulation and wish to advertise your product in Australia, you may also benefit from attending our training on advertising and making claims for therapeutic goods.
