Guidance on advertising COVID-19 rapid antigen tests
Requirements for advertising
Advertisers of rapid antigen tests, including suppliers of COVID-19 rapid antigen tests and testing service providers, must ensure that any advertising is compliant with the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (the Advertising Code) and the conditions imposed on the supply and use of rapid antigen tests.
The TGA has published a permission under section 42DK of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 that specifies what must and must not be said when advertising COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to consumers (which includes businesses and organisations).
