Legislation & legislative instruments

The Therapeutic Goods Act, Regulations and Orders set out the requirements for inclusion of therapeutic goods in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, including advertising, labelling, product appearance and appeal guidelines. Some provisions such as the scheduling of substances and the safe storage of therapeutic goods, are covered by the relevant State or Territory legislation.

Australian legislation in full text is available from the Attorney General's Department's ComLaw website (incorporating the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments (FRLI)). For details on how to obtain hardcopies of the Acts and Regulations see australia.gov.au.
