Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs)

SLHD REQUIREMENTS REGARDING REQUESTS FOR THE USE OF ADVANCED THERAPY MEDICINAL PRODUCTS (ATMPs)

An advanced therapy medicinal product (ATMP) is a medicine for human use that is based on genes, cells or tissue engineering.

ATMPs can be classified into three main types: gene therapy, cell therapy and tissue-engineered medicines.

Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) has integrated processes and requirements for managing requests for the use of ATMPs.

SLHD requires early consultations with the Head of the Department of Cell and Molecular Therapies, Institutional Biosafety Committee and Pharmacy for all requests for the use of ATMPs.

Information about the processes and requirements are provided in SLHD Requirements Regarding Requests for the Use of ATMPs.

An schematic overview is given in Figure 1 which should read in conjunction with the information.

Preliminary details about the proposed study can be communicated using the ATMP Consultation Questionnaire.

Site Visits must be approved by SLHD CE. The Proposed Site Visit Request Brief is for requesting approval.

A List of Prompts is provided to assist Principal Investigators assess that the required steps have been undertaken.
