Update: Parliamentary Inquiry Into Approval Processes for New Drugs and Novel Medical Technologies in Australia


The Standing Committee on Health, Aged Care and Sport (the Standing Committee) intend to table the Parliamentary Inquiry report into approval processes for new drugs and novel medical technologies in Australia this Thursday 25 November between 10am – 11am AEDT in Parliament. The Chair and Deputy Chair will speak to the report for five minutes each in the chamber after its tabling. Other Standing Committee members will also have an opportunity to speak to the report in the Federation Chamber in the following sitting weeks.

The Committee’s report will be available on the Standing Committee’s website approximately 15 minutes after the report has been tabled in the chamber.

Rare Voices Australia (RVA) thanks our RVA Partner organisations, as well as other key stakeholders in the rare disease sector, who lodged a Submission and participated in the Public Hearings earlier this year. As a sector, we have ensured that Australians living with a rare disease are central to this Parliamentary Inquiry. RVA looks forward to reviewing the Standing Committee’s report on Thursday.
