You will require this authority if you are a registered medical practitioner and you intend to provide therapeutic drugs that are not registered or listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). There are some legal exemptions to the requirement for a prescription medicine to be registered on the ARTG.
These are implemented through:
- the Special Access Scheme (SAS)
- the clinical trials systems (CTX and CTN).
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
