AMA submission to the government review of complementary medicines regulation
The AMA lodged a submission in response to a consultation paper on complementary medicines regulation, released as part of a broader government review of medicines and medical devices regulation. The AMA’s views are that:
- quality and safety should be the primary objectives of a regulatory framework for complementary medicines
- the current regulatory approach provides a reasonable balance between the needs of sponsors and consumers
- ongoing regulation by an independent body such as the TGA is necessary to protect the public from misleading and fraudulent claims.
