                These Regulations commence on 1 July 2010.

3              Amendment of Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990

                Schedule 1 amends the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.

4              Definitions for transitional provisions

                In regulations 5, 6 and 7:

Act means the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.

in-house IVD medical device has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods (Medical Devices) Regulations 2002 as in force on 1 July 2010.

IVD medical device has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods (Medical Devices) Regulations 2002 as in force on 1 July 2010.

5              Transitional — certain devices

         (1)   This regulation applies to a diagnostic good for in vitro use that, immediately before 1 July 2010:

                 (a)     was declared not to be a medical device under subsection 41BD (3) of the Act; and

                (b)     was:

                          (i)     listed or registered under Part 3-2 of the Act; or

                         (ii)     subject to an approval under paragraph 19 (1) (b) of the Act; or

                         (iii)     exempt from listing or registration under Part 3-2 of the Act; or

                        (iv)     a device for which an effective application for listing or registration under Part 3-2 of the Act had been made but not finally determined.

Note   For circumstances in which an application under Part 3-2 of the Act is effective, see subsection 23 (2) of the Act.

         (2)   The listing or registration under Part 3-2 of the Act of a device mentioned in subparagraph (1) (b) (i) or (iv) is taken to be cancelled on:

                 (a)     if no effective application for including the device in the Register under Chapter 4 of the Act has been made before 1 July 2014 — 1 July 2014; or

                (b)     the day when inclusion of the device in the Register under Chapter 4 of the Act takes effect following an effective application made for the inclusion of the device in the Register under that Chapter.

         (3)   Despite the amendments made by Schedule 1, a device mentioned in paragraph (1) (b) (iii) that was exempt from the requirements for registration or listing under Part 3-2 of the Act immediately before 1 July 2010 remains exempt until 30 June 2014.

         (4)   The amendments made by Schedule 1 do not apply to each of the following diagnostic goods for in vitro use that, immediately before 1 July 2010, was declared not to be a medical device under subsection 41BD (3) of the Act, until the exemption that applies to the goods immediately before 1 July 2010 ceases to have effect:

                 (a)     a device that was exempt from listing or registration under Part 3-2 of the Act because item 3 of Schedule 5A to the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990 applies to it;

                (b)     a device mentioned in subparagraph (1) (b) (ii);

                 (c)     a device for which an application under paragraph 19 (1) (b) of the Act had been made but not finally determined.

         (5)   For subparagraph (1) (b) (iv) and paragraph (4) (c), an application is finally determined at the first time both the following conditions are met:

                 (a)     a decision has been made whether to grant the application;

                (b)     there is no longer any possibility of a change in the outcome of the decision in terms of the granting of the approval for the import, export or supply, or the listing or registration of the device.

         (6)   For paragraph (5) (b), the possibility of a discretion being exercised after the period has ended, to extend the period for seeking review by a court or tribunal of the decision or of starting other proceedings (including appeals) arising out of the application, decision or review, is not to be considered.

6              Transitional — in-house IVD medical devices

                The amendments made by Schedule 1 apply to an in-house IVD medical device after 30 June 2014.
