The MDIR system has been enhanced to enable Sponsors and Manufacturers to monitor and track device incident reports. Users are now able to electronically lodge initial, follow-up and final reports using the MDIR system. Sponsors and manufacturers can also view their previously submitted reports in the MDIR system.

The MDIR system can be accessed from the TGA website or the TGA eBusiness Services website. The information in the MDIR system is secure with users needing to log in to the MDIR system using their TGA eBS user name and password.
