TGA Update to Poisons Standard to Impact Some Cosmetics Ingredients

This October, the TGA has released an updated version of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicine and Poisons No. 25 (SUSMP) a.k.a. The Poisons Standard. One of the changes is tighter restriction on methylisothiazolinone in Schedule 6 which may affect some rinse off cosmetic preparations or topical rinse off therapeutic goods. These preparations were previously exempt from Schedule 6 of the SUSMP if they contained 0.01% or less of methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone in total. The new exemption has been reduced to a total concentration of 0.0015%. If your products have been affected, contact us for further regulatory guidance.    Source: SUSMP update
