Committee members provide advice on the therapeutic product life cycle, from premarket evaluation to post market product safety. See: TGA statutory advisory committees for more details.

In addition, we are seeking to fill vacancies on the Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee (AIVC), which provides advice to the TGA about the composition of the seasonal influenza vaccine.
