Fees & payments

The TGA is required to recover its costs for all activities that fall within the scope of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, including the TGA's public health responsibilities.

  • A fee is charged for a service, such as a product evaluation, and the level is based on the cost of providing that service using an activity based costing methodology. A list of fees is included in Schedule 9 of the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.
  • A charge is a form of tax imposed on the regulated industry and is applied annually based on a 1 July to 30 June financial year. A list of charges can be found in the Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Regulations 1990.

Consultation with industry representative bodies is undertaken in relation to changes to fees and charges and the TGA publishes Cost Recovery Implementation Statements for each major industry sector.
