CPD requirements for annual registration

Section 5(i) of the Act stipulates that the Council shall “ approve, organise or cause to be organised training programmes, courses, lectures, seminars or conferences for the profession of pharmacists;”

Section 23 of the Act provides that “no person shall have his name on the annual list unless he has followed such continuing professional development courses or training programmes as the Council may determine.”

In practice this means that the renewal of the registration of a pharmacist is conditional upon his having followed a minimum number of hours of approved CPD courses as may be prescribed by the Council
