The TGA has released public consultation on new proposals to amend the Poisons Standard in relation to:

- Amygdalin and hydrocyanic acid, providing a new cut-off limit effecting approximately 21 ingredients that is likely to give some greater certainty to industry and practitioners around the supply of products, cosmetics and raw materials with very low trace levels; and 

- a relate new  Schedule 10 entry for Wild Cherry Bark, effecting a total ban on Wild Cherry Bark for therapeutic use

The same consultation paper proposes cautionary statements for those Green Tea/Tea (Camellia sinensis) products that are not already on the ARTG and not in foods.

Sponsors, manufacturers, raw material suppliers, practitioners and other affected stakeholders are encouraged to read this full tech alert  for:

- important clarifying information on these proposals that CMA has obtained,

- specific information relevant to practitioners,

- background information,

- CMA’s draft positions, and

- details on how to effectively respond to the consultation.

This tech alert is publicly accessible and the link is permitted to shared with practitioner and other interested stakeholders
