TGA Business Services: how to use the site
Update on access to TGA Business Services for clinical trial sponsors
The TGA Business Services (TBS) system allows for different structures and relationships to be developed.
The type of access structure that sponsors set up in TBS will determine who can see Clinical Trial Notification (CTN) form information. You can control the visibility of CTN information within your organisation by choosing the appropriate access framework currently available on the TBS system.
The TGA Business Services site allows industry to manage some therapeutic good registration applications, and view and cancel their current entries on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Sponsors are able to view, download and print ARTG Register entries for their products and generate certificates online.
Clients can also keep up to date with the latest TGA-wide and Industry specific news - directly from the site.
To apply for access to TGA Business Services please see the TGA Business services: getting started with the TGA.
For Sponsors who frequently report adverse events to the TGA, the TGA Business Services site also provides registered users with access to the Adverse Event Management System (AEMS). Please refer to the specific AEMS guidance for Sponsors for further details.
