Being Australian

 

We have seen major transformations in the industry both on a local and global scale. Consumer preference to Australian Made products, however, has remained an unwaivering constant. We are proudly 100% Australian owned and operated and firmly believe this sets us apart in the international community.

In Australia, medicinal products containing herbs, vitamins, minerals, and nutritional supplements, homoeopathic medicines and certain aromatherapy products are referred to as ‘complementary medicines’. These are regulated as medicines under the Therapeutics Goods Act 1989 (“the Act”).

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is responsible for administering the provisions of the Act. The overall objective of the Act is to ensure the quality, safety, efficacy, and timely availability of therapeutic goods, including medicines and medical devices that are supplied in or exported from Australia. The Act includes requirements for all therapeutic goods as well as specific requirements for different types of medicines, such as advertising, labelling, and product appearance.

In contrast, vitamin, mineral, herbal and other health supplements in the United States are regulated as dietary supplements. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is not involved in the assessment or certification of these types of products.

This places Australia at the forefront of complementary medicine regulation and ensures that Australian and international consumers have medicines produced at a high level of quality control.

Our facilities operate in strict compliance to the Australian Standards of Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices and are regulated stringently by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. All facilities are further audited by our Internal Quality Assurance Department to ensure complete compliance with the Australian code of therapeutic manufacturing.
