Database of TGA laboratory testing results

Important information on the Database of TGA Laboratory testing results

Safety alerts

When we identify serious safety or quality issues with therapeutic goods, information and recommendations are posted immediately on the Safety information pages of the TGA website.

This database does NOT provide timely alerts to healthcare professionals and consumers where a serious safety or quality issue has been identified.

Results of TGA Laboratory testing are released in May and November each year. There is a minimum delay of 6 months between the testing and publication of results. This delay in publication is necessary to allow the TGA to undertake any investigations and follow-up action in response to non-complying test results.

More information on laboratory testing of therapeutic goods is available at:

TGA's laboratory testing targets the most appropriate quality and/or performance aspects relevant to the product being tested. As such, a PASS result indicates a sample has met those quality/performance requirements tested by us.

The sponsors identified in these testing results were the sponsor of the product at the time the samples were received by the TGA. This may no longer be the current sponsor for the product. The current sponsor of a therapeutic good can be found by searching the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).

Many unregistered therapeutic goods tested by TGA Laboratories have no packaging, labels or distinguishable product name. In this situation the goods are identified within this database using a description of the goods followed by '(unlabelled)'. E.g. Blue and White Pills (unlabelled).

More information on laboratory testing of unregistered therapeutic goods is available at: Testing of therapeutic products
