Australian Public Assessment Reports for prescription medicines (AusPARs)
29 April 2013
An AusPAR provides information about the evaluation of a prescription medicine and the considerations that led the TGA to approve or not approve an application.
Before a prescription medicine can be made available in Australia, the company legally responsible for supplying the product must lodge a submission with the TGA. The TGA then evaluates the safety, quality and effectiveness of the product to determine if the benefits to people taking the medicine outweigh the risks.
If a company wants to change something about the medicine once it is available, they also need to lodge a submission for the TGA to evaluate.
Please be aware that the AusPAR contains the Product Information for that prescription medicine at the time the TGA evaluated it. Product Information may have been updated since the AusPAR was prepared. For the current Product Information for a medicine please see: Product Information (PI).
