DHEA Australia - Personal import scheme for unapproved medicines

DHEA Australia:
bullet If you live in Australia, you will need to ask your doctor to apply for an import permit from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration before we can send any product containing DHEA to Australia.

 

Here are excepts of some information obtained from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration's website. You can visit the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration's website to obtain further details about importation of DHEA into Australia.
 
DHEA is sold as a dietary supplement in USA. However, under the Customs legislation in Australia, DHEA is classified as either anabolic steroids or precursors and are prohibited imports unless an import permit has been obtained.
 

Where do I get a request form for a DHEA import license into Australia or DHEA import permit into Australia and how long does it take to process?

Request forms for DHEA in Schedule 4 or Schedule 8, item 3C (anabolic androgenic steroids) of the Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations may be obtained from the Treaties and Compliance Section (Ph 02 6289 3200) or write to:

Treaties and Compliance
TGA
PO Box 100
WODEN ACT 2606
Australia

Complete the form and either mail to the above address or fax to 02 6289 3260. Allow 6 weeks for the processing of an import or export licence and 10 working days for the issuance of an import/export permit. An import license or permit for a prescription product (S4) will only be issued to a registered medical practitioner or pharmacist.
