Why You Should Always Buy Australian Made Sunscreen

Sunscreen experts are pleading with Australian consumers to steer clear of so-called "sunscreen pills" and buy Australian-made products over imported ones. In a crackdown on the burgeoning sun protection industry, the US Food and Drug Administration earlier this year warned four companies to stop claiming their dietary supplements could protect people from sun damage. Australia produces the most effective sunscreens in the world and consumers should opt for local products over highly marketed ones from overseas. A TGA spokeswoman said sunscreen pill products were not approved for sale in Australia and sun-screening claims can only be made for products applied to the skin, meet the official standard and have been registered.   Source: Sunscreen pills

National Transport Commission (NTC) Removes Aerosols from Personal Care Products in Consumer Packaging Exemption Clause

In a September update of the ‘Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail’, edition 7.6 (ADG 7.6) by the NTC ‘aerosols’ were excluded from the “Personal Care Products in Consumer Packaging” exemption clause (section 3.4.12). The original version of the ADG 7.6 published on the NTC website exempted all personal care products in consumer packaging from the requirement to mark and label packages, and from documentation requirements if they were correctly classified and packed. This permitted personal care aerosols to be transported by road and rail as “general freight”. An additional new clause has now been added by the NTC to remove aerosols from this exemption.   Source:  Aerosol transport
