Update on the review of the regulatory framework for hospital, household and commercial disinfectants

The Therapeutic Goods Committee NOTES:

  1. the outcomes of the TGA consultation on proposed amendments to the regulation of hospital, household and commercial disinfectants:
    1. namely that there is support for the proposal to make currently registrable hospital, household and commercial grade disinfectants (with specific claims) listable; but
    2. that there have been concerns raised about the appropriateness of the TGA proposal for the regulation of lower risk hospital, household and commercial grade disinfectants (without specific claims); and
  2. that the TGA and NICNAS will work together to develop a proposal for implementing new regulatory requirements for hospital, household and commercial disinfectants that explores the possibility of the TGA retaining responsibility for regulating hospital grade disinfectants while household/commercial grade disinfectants and sanitisers are excluded from TGA regulatory requirements.
