Getting started with the online CTN form

23 August 2016

Getting a user ID

To provide us with an electronic CTN form you will need both a client identification number (Client ID) and access to our secure online TGA Business Services (TBS) website.

  1. Go to TGA Business services: getting started with the TGA.
  2. Follow the instructions provided for completing the Organisation details form.
  3. Page 2 of the organisational details form asks you to nominate one representative from your organisation to have Administrator access. This person will be able to add and remove access for other representatives from your organisation. More information about the various 'roles' within TBS can be found at: TGA Business services - how to use the site.
  4. You will be notified by email when you receive Administrator access, and the email will contain a guide to setting up your password.

How to log in

Once logged in, you will see a personalised work page or 'dashboard'. What you can see and do on the dashboard will depend on what role you have been given. Further information on what each role can see or do can be found at: TGA Business services - how to use the site.

The dashboard

  • To begin completing a new CTN form, select the Applications menu.
  • If you want to open an existing draft CTN form you have saved, select Work on drafts from the My work menu (which is a third of the way down the page).
