Medicine labels and manufacturing information

12 March 2013

On a medicine label you can find the name and address of the Australian sponsor or supplier of the goods. A telephone number may also be included on the label. Please use this contact information if you have an enquiry or complaint about a product.

Labelling requirements for medicines are set out in Therapeutic Goods Order 69 'General requirements for labels for medicines'. This Order does not require the 'country of manufacture' to be identified. The manufacture of a medicine often comprises multiple manufacturing steps; and these steps may occur at multiple sites and across several different countries.
