Review to improve the transparency of the Therapeutic Goods Administration: Final Report – June 2011

Extract from the Executive Summary:

“The Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 states as its principal object ‘to provide for the establishment and maintenance of a national system of controls relating to the quality, safety, efficacy and timely availability of therapeutic goods’ that are used in Australia or exported from Australia. This system is achieved through the operation of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), a Division of the Department of Health and Ageing.

A perception has arisen in the community that the TGA does not provide the public with sufficient information about its activities and about the therapeutic goods that it regulates. This perception led the Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Ageing, the Hon Catherine King MP, to establish a panel of consumer, health practitioners and therapeutic goods industry representatives to review and report on the transparency of the TGA.”
