After we receive an application to register an OTC medicine, we screen the application to determine whether it is complete and meets the requirements for an effective application. If the application is effective, it is accepted for evaluation.
During evaluation, we may make requests for information from the applicant to address issues that we have identified.
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.
