• 7.c. The Therapeutic Goods Associations (TGA) is a part of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aging and is responsible for administering the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. Medicines and devices are evaluated and eventually listed or registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Individual firms seeking registrations are charged fees for the various services provided by the TGA. Over recent years the percentage of the TGA's outlays to be recovered has been increased progressively (currently 100%).
