Dear Ms Sturdy

 

The TGA is currently in the process of making a decision in relation to
the release of documents for your request FOI 1617.

 

Unfortunately, the increased focus on regulatory matters related to the
COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact TGA’s ability to process FOI
requests.  As such, due to delays we are currently experiencing it has
become apparent we will not be able to meet the current deadline of your
request.

 

I would be grateful if you could please consider agreeing to an extension
(under section 15AA) of fourteen (14) days for the processing of your
request. If you agree to this extension the decision on your request would
then be due on or before Friday 8 May 2020.

 

Could you please respond advising whether you agree to this extension by
COB Friday 17 April 2020, if possible.

 

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact the FOI team if you have any questions.

 

Kind regards
