TGAC Training Seminars

 Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code Seminars




In response to industry demand, ASMI has developed face-to-face training seminars on the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code, and surrounding regulatory framework. These have replaced the TGACC seminar series, which were discontinued in 2013.

This comprehensive seminar explains the regulatory framework that governs consumer advertising of therapeutic goods in Australia. It provides detailed information on the three levels of advertising control: regulation, co-regulation and self-regulation. Presenters explain each aspect of the current system, including the application of the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code, the approvals process and complaints mechanisms.

The course covers each section of the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code, illustrated with examples of compliant and non-compliant advertising. The training aims to foster in advertisers an understanding of the principles of the Therapeutic Goods legislation, by relating rules and regulations to everyday commercial practices and consumer understanding.

The seminar will be delivered by:

  • Emi Gosling, Advertising Services Manager, ASMI
  • Sarah-Jane Leon, Advertising Services Manager, ASMI
  • Leanne McCauley, Director of the Advertising Compliance Unit, TGA
  • Jason Korke, former Chairman of the Complaints Resolution Panel
