On October 22nd, 2019 Australia’s TGA released “Consultation: Proposed clarification that certain sports supplements are therapeutic goods”, a document outlining proposed amendments to the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. This proposed amendment would make most supplements under the regulation of the TGA, similar to the FDA’s drug office in the USA.
We sat down with Joseph Mencel of Massive Joe’s to hear his thoughts. As a major importer, distributor, retailer, and someone with a legal background in Australia, he offers a unique point of view in the discussion. Joe is traveling so please forgive the lapses in connection.
The update was later published by the Australia TGA in March of 2020.
