Australian Public Assessment Report (AusPAR) guidance

25 October 2010

Commencing in December 2009, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has begun publishing information about its decisions relating to the evaluation of prescription medicines. The information outlines the outcomes of the TGA’s evaluation process, and provides the rationale on which a decision was made to approve or not approve a prescription medicine submission. The information is provided in an Australian Public Assessment Report (AusPAR), which is published on the TGA website. The AusPAR represents a key addition to the regulatory framework for the evaluation of prescription medicines within Australia.
