The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has granted provisional determination to Biocelect Pty Ltd (on behalf of Novavax Inc.) for their COVID-19 vaccine candidate.

Granting provisional determination means that Biocelect (on behalf of Novavax) is now eligible to apply for provisional registration. Following the provisional pathway provides a formal and transparent mechanism for speeding up the registration of promising new medicines with preliminary clinical data.

Provisional determination is only granted once the TGA has considered all eligibility criteria, including evidence of a plan to submit comprehensive clinical data.
