Abstract

Extract:As well as supplying services, many practitioners supply substances such as vitamins, food supplements and herbs to their clients. The Commonwealth government wants to ensure that these substances are not harmful to users, are manufactured properly, perform as represented and are advertised in a way that does not mislead the users. The Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (Cth) ('TGA') or state equivalents apply to many of these substances. Most professional activities are exempt if certain criteria apply, but it is vital for the practitioner to know what these criteria are in order to stay within the law. The chapter provides a general overview of some of the provisions likely to be relevant to complementary medicine practitioners. As the TGA is complex and very specific in relation to how it may impact on particular substances and practices, practitioners should seek independent legal advice on any matters that apply directly to their practice.
