Switch Applications

Changing the status of a product from a ‘prescription only’ medicine to an over-the-counter medicine, or from a ‘pharmacy only’ medicine to open selling can dramatically change the fortunes of your brand.

But it is a complex and demanding application process. You need to know about the relationship between State and Commonwealth laws and how the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling operates. Most importantly, you need to present clear and detailed arguments using the criteria set by the committee.

We can help you shape your switch application to maximise your chances of success – or we can put the whole thing together and deal directly with the committee on your behalf.  We can also help with switch applications in New Zealand.
