The client had already registered the IVD kits in several global markets and wanted to expand its manufacturing unit for IVD in Australia. Since the IVDs had to be registered according to Therapeutic Good’s Administration’s (TGA) regulations, the company faced challenges that required a holistic strategy in device classification, review of technical files, gap analysis, and further regulatory submissions.
DLI supported the company with a delegated team of experienced regulatory experts who were familiar with the TGA's regulations. Experts of DLI assisted the company in understanding the specific requirements for IVD kit registration in Australia and ensured that the client navigates the regulatory process smoothly and avoids potential delays and pitfalls.

DLI also assisted the client in correctly classifying the IVD kits according to the TGA's regulations. As device classification played a crucial role in determining the regulatory requirements and the level of scrutiny that was needed during the review process.
DLI helped the company in preparing and submitting the necessary regulatory documents to the TGA and collaborated with the company's higher management who had previously handled the regulations in other regions. This included compiling technical data, clinical evidence, labeling requirements, and other relevant information about the company.
DLI also supported the client after IVD kits were successfully registered, DLI continued to provide support in terms of post-market compliance as per clients' demand. DLI services also involved ongoing regulatory surveillance, vigilance reporting, and adherence to any post-market requirements imposed by the TGA.
