TGA reforms: A blueprint for TGA's future (December 2011)
On 8 December 2011, the Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Ageing, the Hon Catherine King announced her plans to reform the TGA to ensure that it remains adaptable to community and industry expectations. The plans, outlined in TGA reforms: a blueprint for TGA's future, will improve the Australian community's understanding of the TGA's regulatory processes and decisions and enhance public trust in the safety and quality of therapeutic goods.
The blueprint was released in response to several major reviews of therapeutic goods regulation that were undertaken in 2010 and 2011. These reviews include
- the review to improve the transparency of the Therapeutic Goods Administration
- public consultations on the regulatory framework for advertising therapeutic goods
- the Auditor-General's report on Therapeutic Goods Regulation: Complementary Medicines
- an informal working group examining the regulation of complementary medicines and reasons for low compliance rates
- public consultations on the medical devices regulatory framework
- the Working Group on Promotion of Therapeutic Products
- the Health Technology Assessment Review.
