Adoption and implementation of decisions

It is envisaged that the states and territories will adopt (by reference) the scheduling recommendations in the Poisons Standard and give effect to them through their relevant drugs and poisons legislation. However, each jurisdiction reserves the right to implement a different scheduling decision to that included in the Poisons Standard to accommodate local circumstances.

A consolidated report of these variances is published on the TGA website.

Scheduling Working Group

Following the 2017 review of the Scheduling Policy Framework, an ad hoc working group will be formed to review the scheduling processes and, if required, provide advice on policy matters to AHMAC.
