Specialist guidance on advertising Therapeutic Goods, Medicines and Health Services.

e-MAS was established by Emi Gosling to provide specialist advice for advertisers, marketers and product sponsors on all aspects of consumer healthcare and product advertising. A full range of services are offered to ensure promotions are effective and compliant with relevant legislation.

Did you know:  With recently increased penalties for advertising non-compliance, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) access a range of compliance and enforcement tools, including public warning or retraction notices and for repeat offenders the possibility of imprisonment, fines over $600 000*, or both.  Offences by corporations can also attract a 5x multiplier of these penalties. 

Are you prepared for June 2020? Some advertisers rely on the current pre-vetting system as a final check to ensure an advertisement or campaign meets the necessary TGA standards. This system is in place to protect consumers from misleading or non-compliant advertising however changes following the Medicine and Medical Device Reforms (MMDR) means the mandatory advertising pre-approval process will soon be abolished. Australia is moving to a self-regulatory system - do you have confidence in your campaign?
