TGA Marketing Authorization Application (MAA)

Banner with Title


Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the Health Authority for Australia, has very specific requirements with different registration categories for various types of pharmaceutical products for the registration and entry into the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).

Experience in handling the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) submission for pharmaceutical products to TGA is critical for successful submission and approvals. Expertise in meeting the typical requirements of TGA in the MAA is very important for smooth review/approval process of the application. Inadequate data leads to a delay in approval and subsequently, a delay in the market entry.
