Industries We Serve
Australia is one of the emerging global markets for pharmaceutical products. For distribution or marketing of medicinal products or drugs in Australia, manufacturers must obtain approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the body responsible for enabling pharmaceutical products registration in Australia. With the recent development in mandates pertaining to labeling and submission formats, it is necessary for manufacturers/sponsors to keep abreast with the TGA regulations.

The medical device market in Australia is well developed with a systematically defined Regulatory system. A major share of the medical devices used in Australia is imported, and the rest are manufactured by renowned global companies. The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulates medical device registration in Australia. Under the purview of TGA, the Australian Regulatory Guidelines for Medical Devices (ARGMD) or the Australian medical device regulations are established, which is said to be similar in line with the European Union regulations.

If the product’s primary function is sunscreen, then such product is regulated under Therapeutic Goods and Administration (TGA).
