Online form to report dodgy medical ads

- Featured Image

Seen a medical ad that doesn’t look quite right? You can now report dodgy ads for medicines and medical devices through a single online form.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has launched a web hub bringing together news and information about the regulation of therapeutic goods advertising, including fact sheets, e-learning modules, and forms for reporting unfair or misleading advertising and submitting enquiries.

The TGA is now the sole body for handling complaints about medicine and medical device advertisements, aimed at the public, with new sanctions and penalties for advertisers who do not comply with regulations.

The revised Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code has also been published.

The hub is available at https://www.tga.gov.au/advertising-hub and the Code is available at https://www.tga.gov.au/publication/therapeutic-goods-advertising-code.
