Offences may be prosecuted in court and can result in fines. Cancellation or suspension of licences may also result.
Review or Appeal Mechanisms:
Licencees of scheduled drugs and poisons may appeal to a Magistrate's Court against a decision by the Chief Executive Officer to refuse, suspend or cancel a licence.
