Information & Training. | Medical Devices.

The following are the steps to Medical Device Approval in Australia, to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements of the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).


Stage 1: Concept – Consider the Essential Principles

Stage 2: Prototype – Incorporate the Essential Principles into the design

Stage 3: Preclinical – Seek approval from or notify the TGA of intention to commence clinical trial

Stage 4: Clinical –

 Follow clinical trial guidelines

 Prepare clinical evaluation of clinical data


Stage 5: Manufacturing – Apply conformity assessment procedures and then obtain appropriate conformity assessment evidence

Stage 6: Marketing – Adhere to the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code

Stage 7: Supply –

Apply to include the device in the ARTG

Monitor safety and performance of the device during its lifetime

Maintain conformity assessment evidence

Report any problems with the device to the TGA and to the users of the device

Recall and/or correct devices that have defects, design flaws, or unacceptable clinical risks or levels of performance


Stage 8: Obsolescence – Notify the TGA so the device can be removed from the ARTG
