Six of the seven guidelines laid down by Complementary Medicines Australia relate to chemical, physical, and microbiological properties of the product. The standards that must be meet include:

  • Products must contain ingredients assessed as safe by the TGA
  • Contain only ingredients at levels agreed to be safe by the TGA
  • Have all active ingredients in the product tested and verified as raw materials
  • Have every batch of final product tested
  • Perform ongoing stability trials
  • Have a product quality review conducted.
