The inclusion of a therapeutic good in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) is not an endorsement of that good by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Advertisers must not use terms such as 'TGA approved' or 'TGA registered' in therapeutic goods advertising, including on labels or packaging. The use of a TGA logo or Commonwealth Coat of Arms is also prohibited.
However, advertisers can include details of the product's ARTG number (and this number is mandatory on medicine labels and packaging). For certain medicines, a 'TGA assessed claim' can also be used in advertising1.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
