Download Half yearly performance snapshot: July to December 2020


The TGA prepares an annual TGA Business Plan, which identifies the priority activities being undertaken over the financial year and is available on the TGA website. This Half Yearly Performance Snapshot provides statistical information for the period 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020 in relation to our regulation of therapeutic goods, tracking our progress against some of the priorities we have identified for the year. This data will be incorporated into our Annual Performance Statistics Report for the 2020-21 financial year, to be published on the TGA website in the second half of 2021.

As part of our annual Business Plan we continue to implement the Australian Government response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. TGA plays a critical role as the regulator of medicines and medical devices, and blood, cell and tissue products. The emergence of this major health pandemic has influenced our future priorities.
