Medical Device Regulatory Overview for Australia
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), a unit of the Australian government’s Department of Health and Ageing, oversees medical device regulation in Australia. Registering your device with the TGA entails risk-based classification; compliance with quality, safety and performance principles; compliance with regulatory controls for manufacturing processes; listing in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods; and post-market vigilance programs.
Devices that have already earned CE certification from European Notified Bodies can more easily substantiate conformity to TGA requirements. Manufacturers must also provide Declarations of Conformity to the Australian Regulations in order to register with the TGA.
