Part 4A Clause 128G
128G   Medical practitioners
(1)  A medical practitioner must not prescribe, supply or manufacture a designated non-ARTG product for the treatment of a person unless:
(a)  the medical practitioner holds an authority under Part 8 authorising the practitioner to treat the particular person with the product, or
(b)  the medical practitioner holds an authority under Part 8, or under the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985, authorising the practitioner to treat any person participating in a clinical trial identified in the authority with the product and the person is participating in that clinical trial.
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
(2)  The Secretary may refer an application for an authority under Part 8 authorising a medical practitioner to treat a person with a designated non-ARTG product to the Medical Committee and, if an application is referred, the Secretary must consider any recommendations of the Committee.
(3)  A medical practitioner must ensure that a prescription for a designated non-ARTG product:
(a)  specifies the number of the practitioner’s authority, and
(b)  if the prescription is issued for the purposes of a clinical trial—identifies the clinical trial, and
(c)  if the product is a medicinal cannabis product (whether or not it is prescribed for the purposes of a clinical trial)—identifies a particular place at which the product is to be supplied for the person, being a place approved for that purpose by the Secretary.
Maximum penalty: 10 penalty units.
Note.
 These requirements are in addition to those that apply to a prescription for a designated non-ARTG product under clause 128K.
