Licence to Possess or Administer a Schedule 4 or Schedule 8 Drug - South Australia

Description

This licence permits the holder such as a hospital, nursing home or day surgery facility to possess or administer Schedule 4 or Schedule 8 prescription drugs. This licence can also be issued in circumstances where urgent access to professionals approved for prescribing Schedule 4 or Schedule 8 drugs is difficult.

Schedule 4 or Schedule 8 drugs may be possessed or administered by a medical practitioner, dentist, veterinary surgeon or nurse acting in the ordinary course of their profession. Some Schedule 4 drugs may be possessed and administered by prescribed professionals (such as chiropodists, dental therapists, optometrists, surgical podiatrists) without requiring a licence (listed in the Controlled Substances (Poisons) Regulations 1996).

If a prescribed professional wishes to possess and administer any other drug not listed, or a person who is not a prescribed professional wishes to possess and administer any drug, then they require a licence.
