TGA Bans Influencers Promoting Some Products!

What has changed? The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has announced new regulation around the paid promotion of goods via influencers. From June 1st 2022 it will be illegal for anyone to receive any benefit such as payment, free products or any other incentive to endorse or review health and skin care products. This includes acne skincare, skin lightening products, vitamins, supplements, sunscreens, protein powders, and medicine.  The new regulation also includes those who are considered experts or qualified in health-related fields, such as medical researchers, doctors, and health care professionals.  The rules will also apply to old content and therefore any posts that break the regulation will have to be removed before June 1st.   Why have regulations changed?…
