TGA Definition: Therapeutic Good

A Therapeutic Good is a product that makes a claim to have a Therapeutic Use. The TGA covers this on their website here, but for ease, an extract is included from the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code 2007:


Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code 2007

Of the above, the most common basis for complaints seems to be that advertisers claim that their Good can be used in either:

  • (a) preventing, diagnosing, curing or alleviating a disease, ailment, defect or injury in persons or animals; or
  • (b) influencing, inhibiting or modifying a physiological process in persons or animals

For services (such as Reiki, colour therapy, or RESET) that are making therapeutic claims, direct the complaint towards the ACCC.
