In response to industry demand, CHP Australia has developed training workshops on the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code, and supporting regulatory framework.
We can also provide bespoke in-house training, customised to your needs.
Contact the experts at AdCheck to discuss your needs. A quote for the service will be provided once needs are identified.
Learning is facilitated by means of presentations, videos, workshops, quizzes, and homework. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate concepts covered in each section.
The workshop will be facilitated by: AdCheck Advertising Compliance Consultants, Kevin Christopher, Leenus Arul Mariathas and Josie Braid.
This course is aimed at professionals working within the OTC, complementary medicine and medical devices industry sectors in the following areas:
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 standards that safeguard public health and safety, is ethical, and delivers the promise made to consumers.
With the abolition of mandatory 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 safeguard consumers and to protect your company’s reputation.
Each TGAC Virtual Workshop is over 3 days for 2 hours and 15 minutes each day spread out over 3 weeks.
