This guidance will assist Australian manufacturers understand how TGA manufacturing licences can be suspended or revoked.

It is not intended for:

  • overseas manufacturers

If you wish to request a variation to the details of your licence, see our guidance on Varying a manufacturing licence.

When we revoke or suspend a licence we will:

Our decision is considered an 'initial decision' and you can request it be reconsidered under subsection 60(1) of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.
