Individuals can legally import most therapeutic goods for personal use under the Personal Importation Scheme into Australia
One of the main questions is how do I get them into Australia.
Individuals can legally import most therapeutic goods for personal use under the Personal Importation Scheme. (that's you in Australia)
Personal importation occurs when:
•an individual arranges from within Australia for a therapeutic good to be sent to them from an overseas supplier or family/friend; (Me) and
•the goods are to be used by that individual or a member of his/her immediate family and are not sold or supplied to any other person.
It is important to note that such therapeutic goods may not be approved for supply in Australia; this means there are no guarantees about their safety or quality. (except I Only send approved TGA manufacturers of kits in Australia or approved Brand Kits)
Under the Personal Importation Scheme you may import a 3 month supply at the one time that means 1 a day per person in a household for front line 2 a day RATs even of unapproved therapeutic goods into Australia without any approval required by the TGA provided that:
•the goods are for your own treatment or the treatment of your immediate family; and
•you do not supply (sell or give) the medicine to any other person; and
•where possible, you keep the medicines or medical devices in their original packaging with any dispensing labels intact; and
•the goods are not restricted under Australian Customs controls or quarantine rules and the goods do not contain a controlled substance; and
•the goods are not injections that contain material of human or animal origin (except insulin); and
•the total quantity of the goods imported within a 12 month period does not exceed 15 months supply of the goods
You in Australia are NOT PREVENTED TO IMPORT RATs under this rule And NO SCOTTY CANT TAKE YOUR PARCEL AT THE BOARDER... Its personally consigned to you :)
PS RATs are not even medical devices either they were de listed to allow retailers to sell in Australia eg Havey Norman
