Public consultation on interim decisions to amend the Poisons Standard - November 2020 ACMS/ACCS meetings

Closes 4 Mar 2021

Why we are consulting

When a scheduling application or proposal is made, they are considered by the person to whom the Secretary of the Department of Health has delegated decision making responsibility to. The delegate may seek advice from the Advisory Committees. Where a proposal is referred to an advisory committee, the delegate must invite public submissions on the proposal. The referral process to the Advisory Committees usually includes two opportunities for public consultation; one at the pre-meeting stage and one in response to the delegate’s interim decision. 

What will happen

This is an interim decision consultation. Any public submissions received are considered by the delegate along with advice from the Advisory Committees before they make a final decision. 

Public submissions are published on the TGA website – see the section on Privacy and your personal information in this consultation.
