Advisory Committee on Vaccines

The Advisory Committee on Vaccines (ACV) is established by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to advise and make recommendations to the Minister for Health and the TGA on issues relating to the safety, quality and efficacy of vaccines supplied in Australia including issues relating to pre-market assessment, post-market monitoring and safe use in national immunisation programs.

The ACV was established in January 2017, following consolidation of previous functions of the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Vaccines (ACSOV) and the pre-market functions for vaccines of the Advisory Committee on Prescription Medicines (ACPM).
