8 February, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dear Colleague,

IITaV invites you and your Partner for an interesting talk on “Regulation of Therapeutic Goods in Australia” with special emphasis on Vaccines and Medical Devices, by Dr. Mandvi Bharadwaj,  on Thursday, 20th February 2020 at Swinburne University of Technology.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is Australia’s regulatory authority for therapeutic goods including prescription medicines, vaccines, complementary and over-the-counter medicines, medical devices, cell and tissue products, blood and blood products. These products are regulated by the TGA in accordance with the provisions of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the Act). The Act requires that therapeutic products imported into, supplied in, or exported from Australia are included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). The TGA uses a risk-based regulatory process based on the evidence of risk compared to the benefits of the therapeutic good. The regulatory process is based on a two-pronged approach, including premarket assessment and post-market- monitoring and compliance. The presentation will give an overview of the regulatory process with a special focus on medical devices and vaccines.

Time:   5.30pm for a 6pm Start on Thursday, 20th February 2020.
Venue:  Room AGSE108, Ground Floor, Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship (AGSE) Building, Swinburne University of Technology, 50 Wakefield Street, Hawthorn
