Listed complementary medicines and sunscreens, unless exempt, are required to be included (listed or registered) in the Australian register of therapeutic goods (ARTG) before they can be marketed legally in Australia.
To supply a therapeutic good in Australia, you must have:
your own ARTG entry for that therapeutic good; or
retail arrangements with a sponsor who has an ARTG entry for that therapeutic good.
Listed complementary medicines can be included on the ARTG with no pre-market regulatory oversight by the TGA, provided that certain conditions are met - this ensures market access as soon as possible. Rather than conducting pre-market assessment, the TGA assures the safety of listed complementary medicines through a program of random and targeted post-market reviews.
