Acronym for the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons. The Poisons Standard (its legal title), is a legislative instrument used in the regulation of drugs and poisons in Australia. It is produced by the Australian Committee for Chemicals Scheduling (ACCS), a committee of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The SUSMP contains the decisions of the ACCS delegate in the aim of standardising the scheduling and packaging/labelling of substances throughout Australia, where such regulation lies within the jurisdiction of the individual state governments. The SUSMP is only a recommendation to the states, however, and differences still exist in the regulation of drugs and poisons between Australian states.
