Sports supplements

Proposed declaration under section 7 of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 that certain sports supplements are therapeutic goods.

The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration is proposing to declare under section 7 the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 that sports supplements containing ingredients not acceptable for food (e.g. medicinal ingredients or substances include in the World Anti-Doping Code Prohibited List) and/or that are presented like medicines (e.g. in capsules, tablets or pills) are to be regulated as medicines, rather than foods.
