The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is an integral part of the Australian Department of Health, primarily responsible for regulating therapeutic goods in the country. At DTS Regulatory Consultants, we help you understand and navigate these regulations, ensuring your products meet the TGA’s rigorous standards.

Key Functions of the TGA

Pre-Market Assessment

The TGA’s pre-market assessment ensures that therapeutic goods, including medicines, medical devices, and blood products, adhere to stringent standards for safety, efficacy, and quality. This process involves a detailed review of scientific data and clinical trial results, a phase where DTS can provide expert guidance to streamline your product approvals.

Licensing of Manufacturers

The TGA requires all manufacturers of therapeutic goods to comply with high standards of manufacturing quality. This includes regular audits of facilities both within Australia and internationally.

Post-Market Monitoring and Surveillance

After approval, the TGA continues to monitor therapeutic goods to ensure they remain safe and effective when used by the public. This includes tracking adverse reactions and other safety concerns through various surveillance mechanisms.

 

Compliance and Enforcement

To enforce compliance, the TGA has the authority to undertake a variety of actions, including inspections, audits, and reviews of advertising and product information. Non-compliance can result in significant consequences, such as fines, product seizures, recalls, or even criminal sanctions. DTS helps you prepare for and respond to compliance checks, ensuring your products consistently meet TGA standards.

Public and Industry Engagement

The TGA is committed to transparency and engages with both the public and industry stakeholders to inform about regulatory guidelines and changes.
