​Import of cannabis medicines

A company located in NSW may import unregistered cannabis medicines if licensed to supply by wholesale under the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008 (NSW), and if compliant with Commonwealth law including the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulation 1956, and/or the Narcotic Drugs Act 1967. Compliance to conditions of any licence is mandatory.
 
A medical practitioner or pharmacist may also import cannabis medicines where the supply is authorised under the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 1966 and approved or exempted by the Commonwealth to access unregistered cannabis medicines.
