You will require this registration if you intend to operate a pharmacy depot. A pharmacy depot is a depot where customers can drop off prescriptions, and pick up dispensed medications.
The purpose of pharmacy depots is to provide services within a smaller rural centre that do not have stand-alone pharmacies. They function as a secure drop-off point to which prescription medicines can be sent for collection by patients, and in some instances, a pharmacist can also sell schedule 2 drugs from a pharmacy depot when he or she is not present.
The depot must be operated by a licensed pharmacy. It must be located at least 15km from the nearest pharmacy.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
