This article was originally published in Clinica
Australia's Therapeutic Goods Amendment (Medical Devices) Bill 2001 will no longer be debated in parliament during the Winter 2001 sitting as originally planned. This is now scheduled to take place during the Spring 2002 sitting, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has announced. The bill, which if enacted will replace the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, was introduced on 29 March 2001. The new regulatory system was due to be implemented in late 2001.
