CMEC Meeting 62 extracted ratified minutes (pdf,87kb)

Public recommendation summary

This summary is posted shortly after the CMEC meeting to give quick advice of certain recommendations made by CMEC to the TGA. The TGA is yet to consider these recommendations and so this summary does not represent final decisions of TGA and should not be taken as such.

Reasons underlying these recommendations will be available after ratification of the Minutes at the next CMEC meeting. Other recommendations may be made at CMEC meetings but, because they concern confidential matters, or matters requiring further consideration by the TGA, they are not available for public disclosure.
