  9. Select ‘Next’ to move to next page.
  10. Read declaration.
  11. Select ‘Print’ to save a copy before submitting.
  12. Select ‘Agree’.
  13. A green dialogue box should advise the application has been submitted.
  14. You should receive an email confirmation from the TGA within 24 hours. If you do not receive a confirmation via email we suggest you contact the TGA ASAP before 22nd July.

The TGA website states that ‘ARTG entries that are available in TBS for a declaration of $0 turnover between 1 July and 22 July 2019 will remain on a sponsor’s list for selection, even after an entry has been included in a declaration submitted to the TGA and its ACE status confirmed. Please be assured that reselection of the same ARTG entry during that period will not affect its ‘exempt’ status.’

However if an error message is generated when you agree to the declaration terms contact both ebs@health.gov.au and ace.scheme@health.gov.au to advise of the issue.
