In December 2018, TGA has announced that there will be an adjustment of Surgical Mesh Devices to transform from medium risk (Class IIb) to high-risk devices (Class III), in order to meet the highest levels of safety, quality and clinical performance.
Sponsors were given three years to comply with the changes, and from 1 December 2021 onwards TGA has already commenced on cancelling surgical mesh devices in the ARTG as Class IIb entries, who do not have obtained an appropriate conformity assessment certificate for Class III devices prior to the set deadline, or within six months of the conformity assessment certificate for the Class III device being issued.
TGA has listed out 3 different tables, categorising meshes that are eligible for transition, approved surgical mesh devices, and existing Class III surgical mesh devices. This is to inform medical practitioners and hospitals of potential supply disruption of some surgical mesh devices from 1st December 2021, and to provide alternative sources of supply.
