Update to the Special Access Scheme (SAS) & Authorised Prescriber (AP) Online System

22 April 2021

The TGA have made some changes to the SAS & AP Authorised Prescriber Online System. The following changes come into effect from today, Thursday, 22 April.

We have made changes to the 'look and feel' and navigation of the portal. You will find it easier to navigate through the portal with information categorised into the relevant sections. In addition, we have made some specific changes to the SAS and AP dashboards.

  • SAS dashboard:
    • The NSW, ACT and VIC forms have been updated to comply with legislative changes. We have also removed the QLD form to reflect recent legislative change.

Refer to the SAS guidance for use of online system on the TGA Special Access Scheme page for instructions on how to use the SAS dashboard.

  • AP dashboard:
    • The process for applying for nicotine products has been streamlined to a single button application available from the AP dashboard landing page.
    • Submission of six monthly patient data reports can now be done directly via the SAS & AP Online System instead of PDF form emailed to the TGA.

Refer to the Guidance for Authorised Prescriber Online System on the TGA Special Access Scheme page for instructions on how to use the SAS dashboard - Authorised Prescribers.

For more information about these changes, please refer to the webinar held in March - Webinar presentation: Special Access Scheme Portal.
