TGA Business services: getting started with the TGA
Apply for TBS access and manage your account details.
If you are a manufacturer, sponsor or agent who wants to use our online services you will need a client identification number (Client ID) and also apply to access to our secure online TGA Business Services (TBS).
This access will allow you to manage some therapeutic good registration applications, and you will need a Client ID and access to TBS if you want to:
- supply in Australia
- import into Australia
- export from Australia
- submit clinical trial notifications (CTNs)
- notify us about adverse events or recalls.
- be designated as an Australian conformity assessment body (Australian CAB).
With access to TBS you will also be able to view and cancel current Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) entries and generate certificates online.
