Why attend?

Therapeutic goods differ from normal articles of commerce.

A system of advertising controls has been put in place to make sure that advertising of therapeutic goods meets certain standards.  We help you make sense of these requirements.
With the abolition of mandatory pre-approvals, the burden of responsibility has shifted entirely to the advertiser and anyone who is involved in the advertising of therapeutic goods (i.e., those who cause advertising). The TGA also has increased powers to enforce the legislation, and sanctions have increased.

A good grasp of the therapeutic goods advertising requirements is essential to ensure that advertising is accurate and ethical, helps consumers make informed self-care choices, and fosters trust in your company and the industry.
