    That title is misleading AF. Change it to 50 disposable 4 ply masks

    • Sorry, it's fixed

        Your website still says TGA Approved. This is nonsense AND against the TGA advertising code. You should remove that statement. Replace it with your ARTG number if you wish but don't try and mislead consumers with "TGA Approved".

        An ARTG number means nothing other than the product can be sold as a medical device. It is NOT a guarantee of quality and it certainly doesn't mean the TGA endorses or has checked the product for quality.

    ARTG registration means nothing. It just means someone has taken the time to fill in a form. It doesn't mean that it has been tested, or that the TGA approves of the results. It doesn't mean that it's quality is any good or that the TGA approves of it's quality.

    I don't know why people even bother saying they have ARTG registration, except for marketing.

    And registration is not equal to approval.

        NO YOU DON'T, you have to obey the regs and not intentionally mislead consumers.

        Here's a direct quote from the TGA website:

        Promoting a product as "TGA approved", or including other government endorsements, whether it is included in the ARTG or not, is a violation of the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code.

        Can't be any clearer can it?

        • Sorry, I'll update the website

          • @NETBEAR: Direct from your website:
            #Golden Health | Disposable Face Mask 4 ply (TGA Approved) - 50pcs#

            Here's how to do it legally and without intentionally misleading unaware consumers: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/562453

          • @NETBEAR: Okay we've overlapped and you've edited your comment. The link above shows the way to do it properly.

            I'll happily remove my neg when you amend your website. Appreciate you taking action, plenty don't.

              @DisabledUser67242: Hi Possumbly, we have updated the website.
              Thank you for pointing it out. We still new at this

                @NETBEAR: Thank YOU for doing the right thing Netbear. I'd upvote the deal but can't because of Ozbargain rules.

                  @DisabledUser67242: I did a proxy upvote for you after reading through (and agreeing the OP has done the right thing).

    • Dead right PCH, even if 3 Ozbargain members don't know the facts. Ozbargain should ban every deal where "TGA Approved" marketing bs is used because it is either knowingly, or ignorantly, misleading consumers.

    • Not sure why people are negging the truth

      • Please note that recently in order to obtain ARTG registration for selling face mask as medical device, applicants will have to send masks sample to TGA for testing. Face masks found not to be medical devices or non-compliant with the safety, quality, and performance requirements will be cancelled from the ARTG. So it is not true to say that TGA has not checked the product quality for registered face masks.

        The detailed information about TGA review of face mask can be found in this link. https://www.tga.gov.au/face-masks-and-respirators-are-regula....

          So it is not true to say that TGA has not checked the product quality for registered face masks.

          Can you quote the extract which leads you to that conclusion please? They claim they will randomly check some - presumably based on community complaints - and remove them from the ARTG "if there is insufficient evidence to demonstrate the safety, performance, or quality of the device." Correlation isn't causation but it appears this may have led to some sponsors voluntarily remove their listing. There's a list of ARTG retirements on the website.

    • I have to disagree with friend PCHammond here as I am also a face mask seller not online though. My shop applied for TGA approval as well. I have paid $550 for Class 1, provide all certified, test report documents, send out 50 masks samples per batch for lab testing in 10 days ( strictly no extension from TGA). So, please research and don’t say ARTG registration means nothing. Thanks!

        I suggest you read what the TGA website says thanhthanh. You cannot sell a mask as a medical device unless it is registered with the ARTG. Registration does not automatically authenticate a product - that is the responsibility of the sponsor (you). The ATG does sfa quality control of product test claims and products themselves - they rely on consumer/user complaints and the possibility of legal action against sellers to regulate the market.

        You paid an application fee to enable you to sell the product as a medical device, as per the TGA fee structure: https://www.tga.gov.au/book-page/medical-devices-3

        That said, if you have a quality product with certification and test results then by all means post that info with your product because there are plenty of substandard masks masquerading (pun intended) as something they aren't. Good quality masks and deals for same deserve our support.

        • Thanks friend Possumbly for your advice about post all certifications and test results with my products. I simply appreciate who sell medical device related products who try to do the right thing by getting ARTG registration, I know many out there don’t. :))

          • @thanhthanh78: As we've seen on Ozbargain previously Than, unfortunately ARTG registration is no guarantee of quality. In some cases people didn't even get the brand/product they thought they were buying. GL with your business.

        • Spot on!

          Saying "TGA Approved" is similar to saying you are "RMS Approved" (NSW) or "Vicroads Approved" (Victoria) for having a driving license.

          • @djbst: You are right djbst, it should be "TGA registered" rather than "TGA approved". However, to have Victoria registered driving license, you can't simply convert your oversea license without complete and pass VicRoads driving test.Similar to TGA registered face masks.

        • Recently in order to obtain ARTG registration for selling face mask as medical device, applicants will have to send masks sample to TGA for testing. Face masks found not to be medical devices or non-compliant with the safety, quality, and performance requirements will be cancelled from the ARTG. Similar to thanhthanh78 's story, we did have to send our samples to TGA for testing. So it is not true to say that TGA has not checked the product quality for registered face masks.

          Thank you for your comment pointing out that saying TGA registered would be more appropriate and not misleading.

            @NETBEAR: I get your point.

            I think you have done the right thing after the mistakes have been pointed out. You are far better than most of the sales people on this platform already.

  • Postage is expensive. $15 postage for a $18 and light weight product. Do you use DHL or something?

    • Hi groupwest, we use sendle for postage for the whole website, if you interested in just masks please pm us we can see if we can get cheaper postage to you.

      Thank you

    • +1

      Agreed. I'm interested in the kids masks but shipping (to Sydney) kills the deal.

      • Hi Tukanglistrik, If you can PM us with your postcode we can check if we can provide a better deal with postage.

        Thank you
