Cosmetic products regulation
What's this about?
The main aim of the draft regulation is to improve the safe use of products commonly used in cosmetic procedures in NSW within the remit of the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 1966.
The draft regulation is not intended to respond to all concerns that stakeholders may have about the cosmetic industry and cosmetic medicines. The draft regulation provides the requirements for the storage, administration and record-keeping regarding:
- botulinum toxins
- hyaluronic acid
- deoxycholic acid
- polylactic acid.
Administration of these substances to a patient outside of a hospital or clinical setting will only be legal where it is administered by a nurse acting on the direction of an authorised practitioner. This includes a medical practitioner, dentist, nurse, optometrist or podiatrist authorised under the Act.
