Legal Services


In terms of the requirements of the Pharmacy Act, the South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) is responsible for universally acceptable standards of professional conduct of persons registered with the SAPC and controlling such persons by investigating complaints or accusations relating to their conduct.

The South African Pharmacy Council holds the view that a person registered with the SAPC should at all times endeavour to act in the interest of promoting public health. A pharmacist, all registered pharmacy personnel and any registered owner issued with a licence in terms of Section 22 of the Act, should maintain and enhance the honour and dignity of the pharmacy profession and refrain from any activity, which may discredit the profession.
