Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has announced (11 September) an internal reorganization as part of broader structural changes within the Department of Health following the Finance Ministry’s call for a "smaller and more rational" government.

The Drug Control Section, which is responsible for administering the regulations on internationally controlled drugs, has moved from the Department of Health’s Office of Chemical Safety (OCS) to the TGA’s Office of Scientific Evaluation.  In addition, the Secretariat for the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS) has also moved to the TGA from the Department of Health.
