The TGA was a founding member of the IMDRF, which is a voluntary group of medical device regulators from around the world. It was established in 2011 and builds on the strong foundational work of the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) on Medical Devices.
The mission of the IMDRF is to strategically accelerate international medical device regulatory harmonisation and convergence to promote an efficient and effective medical devices sector.
The IMDRF Management Committee includes representatives from the medical device regulatory authorities of Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, Japan, the Russian Federation, Singapore, South Korea and the United States.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
