Therapeutic Products Act seminar

Join us to hear about what the Therapeutic Products Act 2023 means for biotech and natural health product businesses that operate in or export out of New Zealand. The presentation will cover topics such as:

• What is a “therapeutic” product
• What are ‘natural health products’ and how will they be regulated under the Act
• How the Act will regulate therapeutic products that contain cells, tissue and other biological components
• What the Act will mean for medicinal cannabis businesses
• What to start thinking about now before the Act comes into force.
