Health Products Portal – Intent to Apply

Page last updated: 14 November 2019

The Department of Health (the Department) has been working to digitise and simplify the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) submission processes, with a particular focus on applications to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC).

The Health Products Portal (HPP) Program is a multi-year program of work in the Department. The program vision is to provide a single, secure and easy to use online portal where Industry can interact with the Department to apply, track, pay, and manage listings for regulated and subsidised health related products and services.

The portal now supports the lodgement of an Intent to Apply, which is mandatory for all major and minor submissions lodged for PBAC consideration. If your company is planning to lodge a Minor Submission to the PBAC for consideration at its March 2020 meeting, we invite you to use the HPP for both the Intent to Apply and lodgement of the submission.

If your company wishes to participate please contact HPP Support on (02) 6289 7627 or hpp.support@health.gov.au. We require your responses by 18 November 2019. An information webinar will be held on 20 November 2019, for participating companies.
