This guidance is for manufacturers and sponsors, to assist in ensuring medicinal cannabis products conform with Therapeutic Goods Order No. 93 (Standard for Medicinal Cannabis) (TGO 93). TGO 93 is a standard that specifies minimum quality requirements for medicinal cannabis products.

Responsibility for products conforming with TGO 93 rests with the sponsor. It is an offence under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, to import, export, or supply therapeutic goods that do not conform to an applicable standard.

Medicinal cannabis products means therapeutic goods that contain, or are manufactured from, any part of the cannabis plant (section 4 of TGO 93).

Cannabis plant means any plant, or part of a plant, of the genus Cannabis, including, but not limited to, the flowers, fruiting tops, seeds, stems and leaves of the plant (section 4 of TGO 93).
