The medical gases that BOC Healthcare supplies undergo rigorous safety and quality checks at each stage in their manufacture to ensure their safety for patient administration.
Medical gases are regulated as registered medicines, controlled by their approved Marketing Authorisations lodged with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. All BOC medical gases and medical devices are registered on the Australian Register of, Therapeutics Goods (eBusiness ARTG database).
All BOC compressed production sites hold Good Manufacturing Practice licences to manufacture, package and sell medicines and are audited to PIC/s Code of Good Manufacturing Practice by the TGA on a regular basis.
Under Health and Safety legislation it is the responsibility of all employers to train their employees on the recommended safeguards relating to products and equipment used at work. To help its customers to achieve this BOC Healthcare provides a range of information on the safe handling of medical gases and their use.
