The Pharmacy Registration Board of Western Australia is established under the Pharmacy Act 2010 (the Act) and is the successor in law to the Pharmaceutical Council of Western Australia. It is responsible for administration of the Act which provides for the regulation of pharmacy businesses.
The Act requires the owners of pharmacy businesses to be registered.
NB. The registration of pharmacists and the handling of complaints about the conduct, health of a pharmacist is the responsibility of the Pharmacy Board of Australia which has its services administered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
The Authority consists of four members appointed by the Minister for Health. Three members are registered pharmacists and one is a community member.
It is the Board’s intention to meet on the first and third Wednesday of the month, except January, when the Board meets only once (normally the third Wednesday of the month). However, this is subject to change and you should contact the Board's offices should you require clarification of the dates of upcoming Board meetings.
