Who is the TGA and what is their role?

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is the part of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing responsible for ensuring that healthcare products available in Australia are of an acceptable standard. Each pharmaceutical and nutraceutical product registered by the TGA is registered for a specific symptom picture at a dose that cannot be altered. An example of this is PANADOL COUGH & COLD PE. The Specific Indications for this medication includes – For the temporary relief of pain (and discomfort) associated with: headache, backache, muscular aches, sore throat, and symptoms of cold and flu. Reduces fever and/or the discomfort associated with fever. If you were to use it for another symptom eg toothache this medication is not registered, even if PANADOL 500mg tablet is recommended for use following dental procedures.

The compounding pharmacies we use retain detailed, signed and authorised reports (Certificate of analysis) for each and every raw material used in our compounding processes, thereby ensuring that whichever country the raw material has come from, it has complied with all the requirements to produce a pharmaceutical material that complies with quality standards as stipulated in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).

The TGA has no jurisdiction in the compounding of any medication let alone bio-identical hormones replacement therapy (BHRT), Compounding pharmacies come under the supervision of the Pharmacy Board.
