The TGA has released a consultation paper: Clarification of the regulation of products used for and by people with disabilities – Options for amendment to the Therapeutic Goods (Excluded Goods) Determination 2018.
This consultation is seeking feedback on options for amending the Therapeutic Goods (Excluded Goods) Determination 2018, to clarify which products intended for use for, or by, people with disabilities are excluded goods, and so regulated as consumer rather than therapeutic goods.
Consultation details, including the paper, are available on the TGA website at: https://www.tga.gov.au/consultation/consultation-products-used-and-people-disabilities. Submissions close 25 October 2019.

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability was established on 4 April 2019 by the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retired).
The Commissioners are required to provide an interim report no later than 30 October 2020, and a final report by no later than 29 April 2022.
The Disability Royal Commission wants to hear from all Australians about their experiences of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.
They want to make it as easy as possible for people with disability to participate in this Royal Commission and share their stories, so they are now accepting submissions where you can share your experiences.
