Is my sports supplement a therapeutic good?

Foundation

24 September 2020

In Australia, sports supplements can be classified as either a food or a therapeutic good.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has made a declaration under sub-section 7(1) of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the declaration) to clarify that certain sports supplements are regulated as medicines (see Changes to the regulation of sports supplements in Australia).

This tool will help you determine if your sports supplement is a therapeutic good under this declaration and therefore should be included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).
