Medicine or vaccine defect report



You should use the Reporting Problems webpage to report a suspected adverse event involving a medicine or vaccine.

Use this form to report defects that you think have arisen during manufacture, storage or handling of medicines. These sorts of problems are usually found in a single batch or a single pack of a product. These problems may require investigation by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) Laboratories.

When filling in this form please:

  • Use a separate form for each product reported
  • Answer each question
  • If you do not have the information requested, write 'none' or 'not applicable'

Report problems requiring urgent investigation by telephone to the Pharmacovigilance and Special Access Branch on 1800 044 144.
