Under the authority of The Pharmacy and Pharmacy Disciplines Act and the SCPP Regulatory Bylaws, the College has the authority to issue a proprietary pharmacy permit to a proprietor, in the name of the pharmacy manager.
Legislated requirements must be met before the permit application will be approved. The structure of directors of the proprietary operating corporation must also meet the legislation and guidelines, and specified corporate documentation must be submitted to the College.
Each pharmacy must have a designated privacy officer who has received the required training and certification. Privacy officers must complete training every three years.
Pharmacy Manager/Director of the Corporation
When a licensed pharmacist assumes the designation as pharmacy manager, that pharmacist also assumes the duties and responsibilities of a Director of the Corporation as specified in clause 19(1)(b) of The Pharmacy and Pharmacy Disciplines Act.
At the February 23, 2017 meeting, Council approved in principle the bylaws that set the continuous quality improvement (CQI) program requirement, which will be met by COMPASS starting with the 2017-2018 permit year.
The bylaws and background information were submitted to stakeholders for consultation before final approval. Based on stakeholder feedback, Council approved the continuous quality improvement bylaws for proprietary pharmacies. These have now been approved by the Minister of Health.
Please see the COMPASS tab on the homepage for more information.
