On 3 May 2016, as part of the 2016-17 Budget, it was agreed to reduce the number of TGA advisory committees from 11 to seven, while retaining the existing functions and requirements of the committees. The new committee structure abolishes the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Medical Devices.
The Advisory Committee on the Safety of Medical Devices was established under Part 6 Division, 1DA of the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990 (the regulations) to advise and make recommendations to the Minister and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) on the safety, risk assessment, risk management, and performance of medical devices supplied in Australia. The ACSMD replaces the Medical Device Incident Review Committee ,which was a sub-committee of the Advisory Committee on Medical Devices.
