TGA SME Assist Workshop: Meeting Your Obligations (Sydney)

Closed 1 Aug 2019

Opened 28 Jun 2019


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

SME Assist, in partnership with Cicada Innovations 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

While the workshop will focus on medical devices, it will also cover the basics of therapeutic goods regulation for devices and medicines.

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.

Basics - An overview of therapeutic goods regulation, including TGA’s role, market authorisation and helpful links for applications.
