Preview of Changes to the Australian Regulatory Environment

Posted 01 February 2009 | By Anne Trimme 

In October 2002, Australia introduced a new regulatory system based on the principles developed by the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) and the medical devices directives applicable to the Member States of the European Union. Since the introduction of the system very little change has been made. Further reform was deferred in anticipation of the introduction of the Australia and New Zealand Therapeutic Products Authority (ANZTPA), which was to have been a combined regulatory agency.
