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.
All pharmacies must comply with the Continuous Quality Improvement Program bylaw requirements.
When a new pharmacy is being established or if there is a new pharmacy manager or pharmacy owner, certain program requirements must be met.
Please see the COMPASS tab on the homepage for more information.
