Advertisements of Unapproved Goods

While it is acceptable to promote the trial in a public domain, the name of the therapeutic product cannot be mentioned as it would amount to advertising. Under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (Section 42DL(1)(g) of Part 5.1 of the Act), it is an offence to advertise any therapeutic good that has not been entered in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).

Please ensure the name of the product is removed in all forms of advertising (e.g. website, flyers, posters).
