As the world continues on finding a way to control the spread of COVID-19, there seems to be a huge demand for hygiene products like sanitizers (both alcohol-based and hand rub), because safely managed hygiene and sanitation are essential components of preventing and protecting human health during this international health crisis. As a result, the trade of hygiene products like sanitizers (both alcohol-based and hand rub) and disinfectants in Australia is growing fast.
It is very critical to keep a tab on global regulations and regional hand sanitizer compliance requirements. Few hygiene products, due to their anti-microbial or anti-bacterial claims may be classified as drugs due to which the process of documentation, the review, and product registration may become exhaustive. This may result in missing out an opportunity hand sanitizer registration in Australia. This can be overcome by altering the claims or marketing text so that the product can be classified as a cosmetic and be registered at short time with a simple process.
