[grow_thumb image=”http://telecareaware.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Australia-flag.jpg” thumb_width=”150″ /]For over a decade, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)
has had a ‘fast track’ expedited review program in place for medical device importers–including mobile health–with existing CE Marks. Now this program, after a long campaign, will be extended to Australian manufacturers–and there are other changes. Arthur Brandwood, who spearheaded this effort, will be conducting a free webinar on Tuesday 18 November, noon Eastern Time (US). It will cover Australia’s aggressive deregulatory agenda, their tax incentive (43.5 percent for R&D expenditure), the simple process for regulation of clinical trials and TGA’s web based submission process for device approvals.
If you do or are considering doing medical device or digital health business in Australia, this webinar is worth considering. The replay, slides, and transcript will be available to everyone who registers. It is sponsored by the Medical Devices Group
which has one of the largest (250,000+ member) presences on LinkedIn and was founded by the late Christopher Taylor of Innokas Medical (UK). Webinar signup. Hat tip to Medical Devices Group leader Joe Hage.
