8.9  Notification of listing on the PBS

The Department cannot confirm the date of listing, as even after the Department and the applicant have agreed the price and financial impact as the actual listing date is subject to agreement with other Government Agencies and is ultimately a decision of the Australian Government.

Approximately two weeks prior to the effective date, the nominated Authorised Representative will receive a notification from the Supplier Update System which contains the Summary of Changes relevant to the particular Responsible Person.

The Summary of Changes includes a notification of the new listing, the item code that the new item will be listed under and other details regarding the prescribing requirements for the new item. The timing of this notification is dependent on the requisite agreements being in place.
