Regulation of Retail Pharmacy Businesses (Amendment) Regulations 2016

These Regulations amend the Regulation of Retail Pharmacy Businesses Regulations 2008 to require pharmacy owners and superintendent pharmacists to store medicinal products, which are not prescription medication or schedule 5 controlled drugs or medicines listed on a general sales list, to be stored in a part of the pharmacy premises to which the public does not have access.

These Regulations also amend the Regulations of 2008 to provide that this requirement, along with the requirement to ensure that prescription medication and schedule 5 controlled drugs are not accessible to the public for self-selection, are relevant provisions for the purpose of section 18(3) of the Pharmacy Act 2007.

These Regulations may be cited as the Regulation of Retail Pharmacy Businesses (Amendment) Regulations 2016.
