Process to change a registered OTC medicine
V1.2, June 2017
Step 4 - Obtaining an ID number for new proprietary ingredients
Skip this step if you are not including a new proprietary flavour, fragrance, ink or colour in the medicine.
- If you are adding a proprietary flavour, fragrance, ink or colour to the medicine, check whether the proprietary ingredient is included in the 'Proprietary Ingredients Table' under Public TGA Information on the Business Services homepage.
If the proprietary ingredient is not in the Table, before you submit your application:
- Submit the completed Notification of a New Proprietary Ingredient form to obtain a proprietary ingredient ID number.
You will need the proprietary ingredient ID number to complete your application to change the medicine (Step 8).
