Purpose

The purpose of this consultation is to obtain your views on the proposed changes to the PMR Framework. Primarily, the changes seek to reduce the time taken to conduct a PMR from 2-3 years to 12 months, while providing a flexible and transparent process for all stakeholders.

The current PMR Framework states that a PMR takes approximately 12 months however, “more complex Reviews may vary from this structure, and could potentially take longer to complete.” Since the PMR program was implemented in 2015, a Review has rarely been completed within two years. The revised PMR Framework will allow for transparent, timely and agile advice to be provided to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) and the Minister.

The current PBS Post-market Review Framework flow chart is provided in Figure 1 below to assist in responding to the sections below.
