Inspection officers appointed by Council to perform inspections

The Inspection Officers are responsible for conducting inspections in all categories of pharmacies, primary healthcare clinics and facilities approved by the South African Pharmacy Council (henceforth “Council”) in order to assist in the maintenance and control of standards of pharmacy practice in both the public and the private sector.

In arranging an inspection, Council takes into consideration, the distance to be travelled by the officer, not necessarily the province where an officer is placed. Pharmacists should note that the Inspection Officers are not obligated to make an appointment and that they can arrive unannounced at any time. Be ready and ensure that you comply with the Rules pertaining to Good Pharmacy Practice and other applicable legislation.
