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.
