You will need to comply with these standards if you intend to package therapeutic goods or medicines for use within Australia. These standards include requirements for:
- label size
- font size
- measurements of the product contained
- product name
- storage conditions
- directions for use.
Currently, there is a transition period where you can choose to comply with either Therapeutic Goods Order No. 69 - General requirements for labels of medicines (TGO 69) which is considered the old labelling requirements or the new labelling requirements under TGO 91 / 92 (whichever applies). The labels must fully comply with all the requirements of either the old or the relevant new Order. You may not selectively comply with parts of different orders. After 31 August 2020, you must comply with either TGO 91 or TGO 92.
You must submit your intended label to the administering agency before it is able to be placed on the market.
