About reporting

We prioritise issues that may:

  • Have adverse health consequences for consumers as a result of public access to dangerous or inappropriate goods,
  • Affect confidence in our regulatory processes or contribute to a loss of confidence in therapeutic goods in Australia.

Black Triangle Scheme

The Black Triangle Scheme provides a simple means for practitioners and patients to identify certain types of new prescription medicines, and to encourage the reporting of adverse events associated with their use.
