Previous meeting minutes:
The Medicines Classification Committee was established in November 1984. The previous meeting minutes are available to the public and have been organised into five year periods.
Submitting an objection to a recommendation made at the most recent meeting:
Following publication of the minutes, notice of intention to object to a recommendation together with a summary of the grounds on which the objection will be made should be lodged with the Medicines Classification Committee Secretary (at firstname.lastname@example.org) by the closing date given in Dates and Deadlines. The deadline for lodging an objection to a recommendation is approximately 10 working days following publication of the minutes.
Supporting data for an objection need not be lodged at this time but should be submitted to the Medicines Classification Committee Secretary (at email@example.com) by the closing date given in Dates and Deadlines. This date usually coincides with the closing date for comments on agenda items for the next meeting.
For more information on lodging an objection, refer to Phase 6 of How to Change the legal classification of a medicine in New Zealand. (PDF 426 KB, 13 pages).
Objections may be made only on safety grounds and must be to the recommendation itself rather than the original submission.
