    Over a number of years the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the complementary medicines
    industry have recognised difficulties in appropriately quantifying the activity of enzymes used as active
    ingredients in listed medicines. One difficult aspect has been in establishing an appropriate unit for the
    enzyme activity of the improved ingredient ‘bromelains’ (Australian Approved Name).
    As such the CHC seeks industry feedback on the attached proposal to assist in the resolution of this issue.

    Please provide any comments to the CHC by COB Thursday, 24 October.

    As sponsors would be aware, when applying to list a new medicine on the Australian Register of
    Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) via the listed medicines online portal (ELF), “Product Name” is one of
    the mandatory data entry fields. The current maximum length of this field is 300 characters.

    The TGA have identified that a very small number of medicines listed on the ARTG have additional
    information entered into the Product Name field. This information is entered by the sponsor
    when listing a medicine and may include the ingredients, dosage and formulation. There are other
    data fields within ELF to appropriately record these medicine properties.
