Australian Made Complementary Medicines
Members of the Complementary Medicines Industry are calling on government to act on recently published ACCC Country of Origin guidelines that will see the Australian complementary medicines industry stripped of using the “Made in Australia” logo.
The revised Country of Origin guidance, released in March this year, means that by extension over 200 licensees to the Australian Made logo are currently in danger of having their ‘Made in Australia’ credentials revoked and the hurdles increased. If complementary medicines that are manufactured and tested in Australia cannot claim “Made in Australia”, the result will cause unnecessary yet serious impact on the industry and wider global reputation including reduction in investment into Australia, job losses and hinder industry growth.
