TGA Regulations: Blood and Tissue Products including Human Blood Components/Plasmas and Cellular Therapy Products

GMP Compliance Training (Online): Australian Regulations for Blood and Tissue Products

While the TGA audits most products according to the PIC/S GMP Guides and Annexes, they have published Australian-specific guidance for human blood and tissue products. The purpose of the TGA’s regulations and GMP Code for blood, blood components and human tissue products (including cellular therapy products) is to ensure the availability of safe, effective products and to mitigate the inherent risks of these product types while maintaining a reliable supply chain.

This training course is designed to benefit personnel working with human blood, plasma and tissue products at all levels of the supply chain, from clinical trials to blood collection centres and blood banks to blood and tissue processing, tissue manipulation, blood and tissue product packaging and labelling, and cellular therapy/product testing laboratories.

GMP helps ensure blood and tissue products are safe and effective for patients.

The central aim of blood & tissue product regulations/GMP requirements (and of this training course) are to:

  • Ensure a secure supply chain for these life-saving therapeutic products
  • Ensure such products are sourced/collected, handled, screened, tested, stored, packaged, and transported in ways that maintain product quality, efficacy, integrity, batch traceability and supply chain security.

GMP Course (Scope): This GMP elearning module discusses GMP industry standards and regulatory compliance requirements that apply to Blood, Blood Components (Plasmas) and Tissue Products in the Australian market.

The “Regulations: Blood & Tissue Products” online GMP Code compliance training course will provide personnel with a helpful resource for the collection, processing, storage and transport (distribution) of medicinal products that involve the collection and/or processing of human blood, blood components, or human tissue products including various cellular therapies.

This GMP guidance applies to human blood and tissue products used for various functions, including blood donations, tissue and blood collection (source materials collection), donor screening processes and batch recordkeeping, new drug development processes, research, processing or manufacturing of blood, plasmas, tissues, and cellular therapies; treatments, etc. within Australia.
