1              Name of regulations [see Note 1]

                These Regulations are the Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Regulations 1990.

2              Interpretation

         (1)   In these Regulations, unless the contrary intention appears:

biologic, in relation to therapeutic goods, means goods in which the active ingredient is a biological substance.

biological substance means a substance of biological origin that:

                (a)    in many cases, is chemically complex and with a molecular weight of more than 1 000; and

               (b)    is not defined by a chemical name because its purity, strength and exact composition cannot be readily determined by chemical analysis.

Example

Hormones, enzymes and related substances are biological substances. Herbal substances and antibiotics are not biological substances.

Class 1 biological has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.

Class 2 biological has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.

Class 3 biological has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.

Class 4 biological has the same meaning as in the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990.

Poisons Standard has the same meaning as current Poisons Standard in Part 5B of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.

the Act means the Therapeutic Goods (Charges) Act 1989.

         (2)   In these Regulations, a reference to a medical device of a particular class is a reference to a medical device classified as that class under Division 3.1 of the Therapeutic Goods (Medical Devices) Regulations 2002.
