Launch of the TGA Advertising Hub
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has launched the Advertising Hub, which hosts news and information about the regulation of therapeutic goods advertising, including a new form for lodging complaints about illegal or misleading ads.
The TGA encourages consumers to use the hub to educate themselves on the rules that protect them against misleading ads for therapeutic goods. Fact sheets such as ‘The top 10 things to look out for in medicine advertisements’ explain the controls in place to protect the health and safety of consumers. Other useful resources include ‘How to make a complaint’ and ‘The 6 stages of complaint handling’.
The hub can be accessed at www.tga.gov.au/advertising-hub.
Feedback on the content and functionality of the Advertising Hub is welcomed and can be sent to at TGA.Advertising@health.gov.au.
