TGA response

The TGA has considered the submissions received. The feedback provided will inform the policy and future implementation pathway. Stakeholders supported TGA's proposals to up-classify all surgical mesh and to introduce consumer product information leaflet and patient implant cards with medical devices. There were mixed reactions to the transition times. The TGA will seek to balance the differing views and need for improved public health outcomes.
