From 31st January 2020, only hard surface disinfectant products with a registered specific claim will have ARTG Listed status.

There have been some recent changes to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulation of Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) Registered and Listed Disinfectants. From 16 October 2018:
