An updated sunscreen standard was published by Standards Australia in 2021 (Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) 2604:2021). The TGA is currently in the process of adopting this version into our therapeutic goods legislation.
Information for sponsors relating to the future inclusion of the new Australian Sunscreen Standard, and any transition arrangements, will appear on this page.
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.
