You will need an eligibility certificate if you intend to hold an interest in a pharmacy business. An eligibility certificate (EC) is a licence that confirms the holder's eligibility to have an interest in a pharmacy business. It can cover up to four businesses if all the interests are held in the name of the holder of that EC. Eligibility certificates may be applied for as either:
- an individual pharmacist
- a partnership
- an individual as trustee for a trust
- a body corporate
- a body corporate as trustee for a trust.
