TGA SME Assist Workshop: Meeting Your Obligations (Sydney)

Closed 17 Feb 2020

Opened 24 Jan 2020


Navigating the regulatory maze can be a challenge, especially if you're new to regulation. 

SME Assist presents Meeting Your Obligations: a free workshop aimed at beginners who are unfamiliar with therapeutic goods regulation. This may include:

  • small to medium enterprises (SMEs)
  • start-ups
  • researchers

If you are making therapeutic claims about a product or have a product that is likely to be considered a therapeutic good, this workshop will help you understand your responsibilities at different stages of the regulation process.

What will be covered

Part I: Basics of regulation - an overview of therapeutic goods regulation, TGA’s role and sponsor responsibilities when supplying  therapeutic goods in Australia.

Part II: Case studies - general principles of market authorisation, manufacturing, advertising and post-market monitoring as they relate to therapeutic goods.

Part III: Q&A with TGA staff - opportunity to ask general questions.

Part IV: Product focus (subject to demand) - sessions focusing on the various types of therapeutic goods. Nominate your area of interest when you register:

  • Medical devices (e.g. surgical instruments, bandages)
  • Complementary medicines (e.g. vitamins, nutritional supplements)
  • Prescription medicines (e.g. antibiotics, monoclonal antibodies)
  • Biologicals (e.g. tissue-based products, stem cells)
  • Over the counter medicines (e.g. paracetamol, lozenges)
