Regularity of sanctions
How frequently does the regulator impose serious sanctions for non-compliance?
Non-compliance with the TGA is a common occurrence, particularly in relation to obtaining a license. As of yet, only fines have been imposed.
Please note that the TGA is in the process of being amended and is currently being considered by the House of Representatives. Under the Bill, prize promotions by risk-taking will be governed by a new Act, the 'Prize Promotion by Risk-Taking Act.'
Pursuant to the most recent version of the Bill, arranging a Prize Promotion without a license would be subject to higher sections including imprisonment of 2 years and a maximum fine of ฿80,000 (approx. US$2,530) or both.
