Complementary Medicine Country of Origin Labelling

Closed 12 Feb 2019

Opened 22 Jan 2019

Overview

With assistance from a multi-agency taskforce, we are investigating the impact of use of the ‘Australian Made, Australian Grown’ logo in the complementary medicine sector. In particular, we are looking at vitamin, mineral and supplement products.

Why We Are Consulting

We are currently seeking comments from Australian businesses directly involved in producing vitamins, minerals or supplements and/or those selling these products under a private label or brand.

The survey will let us know your views on the use of the logo and country of origin labelling in general. Your views will help inform our assessment of the impact of the recent Country of Origin Labelling changes on the Australian complementary healthcare sector.

Survey questions

This survey will ask you questions about your business, your complementary medicine manufacturing, import and export activities, and how recent legislative changes have impacted your business.

Before you start, we suggest you review the explanatory notes and prepare responses.
