    We are still in charge - Pharmacy Council to pharmacies

    In a public notice issued today, the Registrar of the Pharmacy Council reminded relevant stakeholders and the general public that the Pharmacy Council is still the regulatory body mandated by the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act 845, Part 4, to license and register all new and existing pharmacies as well as licensed over the counter medicines outlets across the country.

    The Registrar advised stakeholders to disregard any information from "unsolicited persons" who are spreading falsehood that the pharmacy regulator is no longer the recognized body authorized by law to license pharmacies and other pharmaceutical outlets.

    The Registrar cited the following sections of the Act 857 which give the Pharmacy Council the legal mandate to issue licenses to all government and private sector pharmaceutical service providers:

    93. (1) The Board may grant a license to a body corporate or a government
    institution if satisfied that
    a) the applicant is fit to carry on the business of mixing, compounding, preparing
    or supplying restricted medicines by retail, and
    b) the business of the applicant is carried on under the super-vision of a
    superintendent pharmacist.
    (2) The Board may revoke the license granted under subsection (I) where a condition
    specified in the license has not been complied with.

     

    94 (1) The Board may grant a license to an over the counter medicine seller if
    satisfied that
    a) the applicant is fit to carry on the business of the retail supply of restricted
    medicines other than prescription only medicines or pharmacy only
    medicines, or
    b) the area where the applicant proposes to carry on the business is deprived of a
    pharmaceutical service.
    (2) The Board may revoke the license granted to an over the counter medicine seller
    if the over the counter medicine seller is in default of a provision of this Part or if a
    condition specified in the license has ceased to exist.
    (3) The Board may impose a penalty not exceeding two hundred and fifty penalty
    units instead of revoking a license where an over the counter medicine seller contravenes
    this section.

     

    95. (1) A person shall not carry on the business of the wholesale supply of restricted
    medicines unless that person has a license for the wholesale supply of restricted
    medicines.
    (2) The Board may grant a license for the wholesale supply of restricted
    medicines subject to conditions which may prohibit or limit the supply of restricted
    medicines of a particular description.
    (3) A promotional or marketing office where a person intends to engage in the
    wholesale pharmacy business shall be licensed and supervised by a registered pharmacist.
    (4) The Board may revoke the license granted for wholesale pharmacy if the
    license holder has contravened a provision of this Part or a condition specified in the
    license has ceased to exist.

    The regulatory body concluded its brief statement by wishing all stakeholders a "merry Christmas and a prosperous new year."
