Public Consultation - Fees and charges proposal 2022-23

Closed 7 Mar 2022

Opened 25 Jan 2022

Overview

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is conducting a public consultation to provide industry and other interested stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on options for the TGA’s proposed fees and charges for the 2022-23 financial year. Specifically, we are seeking feedback on the potential impact/s of the proposed options, prior to seeking approval from the Government for any changes.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) within the Department of Health is responsible for the supply, import, export, manufacturing and advertising of therapeutic goods. In order to meet these responsibilities, the TGA recovers its costs from industry in accordance with Australian Government cost recovery arrangements. The Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the Act) provides the legal authority for the TGA to charge for its regulatory activities. The Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Act 1989 provides the legal authority to levy annual charges on sponsors and manufacturers of medicines, biologicals and medical devices.

The consultation is open from Tuesday, 25 January 2022 to Monday, 7 March 2022. Submissions in response to the consultation paper can be made through the link below during this time period.

Why your views matter

The TGA has a long standing practice of targeted consultation with the industry bodies in relation to proposed changes to fees and charges for the next financial year. The TGA requests the peak bodies to bring any proposals for fees and charges to the attention of their members. In addition, the TGA also publishes a public consultation paper on fees and charges to provide an opportunity for organisations who are not members of industry bodies that the TGA meet with, other stakeholders and the wider community to comment on the proposed fees and charges.
