ANZTPA Launches Joint Adverse Event Notifications System

Posted 28 June 2013 | By Ansis Helmanis 

The Australia New Zealand Therapeutic Products Agency (ANZTPA) has launched an adverse event reporting database, the Joint Adverse Event Notifications System (JAENS), that combines drug and device adverse event reports received by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and New Zealand's Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Authority (Medsafe).

Reports come from a wide range of sources, including members of the public, general practitioners, nurses, other health professionals and the therapeutic products industry. JAENS includes two search functions, one for specifically for drugs, and the other for devices

Since June 2011, Australia and New Zealand have been moving towards a joint regulatory scheme for therapeutic products.  The two countries anticipate that ANZTPA will replace the TGA and Medsafe in 2016.
