RELEVANT WEBSITE ADDRESSES TO LODGE YOUR TGA COMPLAINT

David Howell. Naturopath
Toowoomba, Australia

Jul 15, 2013 — Consultation Regulation Impact
Statement
Regulating the advertising of therapeutic goods to the general public
Version 4.6, May 2013

www.tga.gov.au/newsroom/consult-open.htm (for the coversheet for your submission).

advertising.consultation@tga.gov.au (for the actual submission)

http://www.finance.gov.au/obpr/proposal/handbook/appendix-C-best-practice-consultation.html (for the TGA's own proposal regulation handbook that shows they should have);

Released this proposal to the general media when stakeholders include the general public - (it is, after all, your freedom of choice in question)
Not released the proposal over a holiday period (they did, over national holidays)
Not released the proposal over the end of the financial year, especially when stakeholders are small businesses (they did, with many stakeholders being Naturopaths, Herbalists and Homoeopaths in small business)

These all suggest that the proposal was rushed through "under the radar".
