Orders that goods are therapeutic goods

Note: If you intend to rely on any legislation referred to on this website, you should access copies of the official versions on the Attorney General's Department's Federal Register of Legislation (FRL) website. Instruments are amended from time to time and may, on occasions, be replaced or new instruments made.

Occasionally it is unclear whether particular goods are therapeutic. In these circumstances, it is necessary to define legally that particular goods are therapeutic goods, and therefore are to be regulated by the TGA under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the Act).

The definition of therapeutic goods is found in section 3 of the Act.
