The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has published a list of disinfectant products that have been included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) with specific claims against SARS-Cov-2 (COVID 19) or COVID-19 on the product label.
The TGA stated on its website it had recently received a number of enquiries seeking to know which disinfectants have been included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) for use against COVID-19.
“Claims that a disinfectant has an effect against any virus must be expressly permitted by the TGA before being used in consumer advertising (including on the label),” the regulator said.
The TGA recently fast tracked changes to its guidelines under Therapeutic Goods Order 104, 2019 to allow listed disinfectants to make validated claims to kill the COVID-19 virus on surfaces. The new arrangements were uploaded to the TGA website on 23 March 2020.
