About the consultation

The TGA is undertaking a consultation through its website to seek stakeholder's views on TGA's proposed fees and charges for 2019-20. The consultation paper outlines the proposed changes to fees and charges effective from 1 July 2019.


Consistent with its approach to consultation in relation to fees and charges, the TGA met with 13 industry representative groups in a series of bilateral meetings between 6 December 2018 and 21 December 2018 to discuss the TGA's budget outlook for 2018-19 and the proposed changes to fees and charges for 2019-20.

Prior to implementing the changes, the TGA would like to provide opportunity for any further comments through this consultation.


Submissions may provide any comments related to proposed fees and charges for 2019-20 only.

Members of peak industry bodies that the TGA held bilateral meetings with (listed in the consultation paper) are encouraged to present their comments through the respective peak body so that the industry body can present a consolidated industry feedback to the TGA.


Any questions relating to submissions should be directed to the Regulatory Pricing and Decision Review Section by email to
