This includes poisons for therapeutic use, poisons restricted to medical, dental or veterinary prescription or supply, hazardous poisons, poisons requiring special precautions or those for which restrictions recommended for drugs of dependence apply.
If you are granted a certificate of registration, you can supply medicines and poisons to:
- medical practitioners

You must see a person's authorisation or be satisfied they are authorised before you supply them. They should give you a signed written order.
You may only supply the medicines specified in the authorisation or licence for retailers and medical kit holders.
When supplying retailers, it is your responsibility to make sure their licence is current. Retailers do not need a licence to sell Schedule 5 and 6 substances.
