6.9 PBAC and subcommittee members attending other meetings
Organisations, academic groups and pharmaceutical companies may request a representative from the PBAC, or its subcommittees or working groups, to attend meetings or make presentations about:
- previously published outcomes in relation to submissions
- issues arising from the PBAC Guidelines
- PBAC processes.
All requests will be considered by the PBAC Chair, who may take requests to the full committee if needed.
The PBAC can nominate specific members to represent the PBAC on other committees, or hold joint membership with other committees.
Where PBAC organises meetings with other entities, PBAC members can attend to represent the PBAC with the Chair’s out-of-session or the committee’s approval. Such meetings include meetings with the representative pharmaceutical industry bodies, such as Medicines Australia, and meetings with stakeholders.
