You will need this licence if you intend to operate a retail store that will sell or supply certain therapeutic substances to the public.
This licence authorises you to sell any substance that is classified as a Schedule 2 substance in the Poisons List.
Schedule 2 substances are also referred to as 'Pharmacy Medicine'. They are available from pharmacies and other licenced retailers in rural areas where there are no pharmacies nearby. Many painkillers and products used to treat minor conditions are considered Schedule 2 substances.
