Australia: TGA Adopts 2021 Sunscreen Standard (w.e.f 1 July 2024)

Starting 1 July 2024, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will adopt the 2021 Sunscreen Standard (Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) 2604:2021) into the legislation. The updated standard as published by Standards Australia will provide the updated testing and labeling requirements for sunscreens marketed in Australia.

Hence, all new sunscreen products included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) must comply with the 2021 Sunscreen Standard.

Five (5) years of transition period is given to all existing sunscreen products (aerosol and non-aerosol) included in the ARTG before 1 July 2024 will be given to comply with the testing requirements under the 2021 Sunscreen Standard.

While existing aerosols and spray pump packs included in the ARTG before 1 July 2024 will have one (1) year transition period to comply with the required labeling requirements in the 2021 Sunscreen Standard.
