Consultation: Adoption of International Scientific Guidelines in Australia

20 June 2022

Opening date: 20 June 2022

Closing date: 29 July 2022

We have changed the way to make submissions.

Submissions now should be provided through our consultation hub.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is conducting a public consultation seeking feedback on whether certain international scientific guidelines should be adopted.

International scientific guidelines are not limited to prescription medicines, but may also apply to over-the-counter (OTC), complementary and some listed medicines. While guidelines that are adopted in Australia are generally not mandated by legislation, they provide guidance to sponsors to assist them to meet the legislative requirements and any deviation from a Guideline relevant to an application to register or vary the registration of a medicine must be justified.

For more information on the international scientific guidelines, and to participate in the consultation, please visit the consultation hub.

Timetable

The consultation opens on Monday 20 June 2022. Interested parties should respond by close of business Friday 29 July 2022.
