Australia Dahua Faked Advertisement, Government Warns of 'Criminal Offense' for Not Registering As Medical Device

By Charles Rollet, Published Jun 25, 2020, 08:21am EDT

A full-page advertisement in a national Australia newspaper for Dahua's temperature cameras faked temperature screening.

Meanwhile, the Australian government told IPVM that Dahua's devices are not included in the country's medical device database, ARTG, and that "it is a criminal offence to supply or advertise a medical device that is not included in the ARTG."

In this report, we examine the ad, its problems, and Australian medical device regulations, including:

  • Full Page Ad in Major Australian Newspaper
  • Problems With Ad Analyzed
  • C.R. Kennedy Says Marketing from Dahua, After Adds Tiny Disclaimer
  • Australian Government Responds: 'Fever Cams' Are Medical Devices
  • TGA: "Criminal Offense" to Supply or Advertise Medical Device Not in ARTG
  • C.R. Kennedy Denies Medical Device, Says No First Amendment In Australia
  • TGA: "This Is Incorrect"
  • TGA: Any Products "Brought To The TGA's Attention, Will Be Investigated"
