Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) guidelines will assist sponsors to prepare applications to register new prescription or other high risk medicines for human use in Australia, or to vary existing medicine registrations. The format for applications is the Common Technical Document (CTD). These guidelines are not intended to replace the CTD guidelines but to provide explanation that complements the CTD. These are guidelines, and not legally binding.
