From time to time, the Pharmacy Board of Australia reviews and updates the codes and guidelines it develops to provide guidance to the profession.
Reviews include a public consultation phase which is open for submissions. Consultations on proposals that affect the profession are on the Board’s website under Current Consultations.
Once a revised code or guideline is approved by the Board the previous version is retired. Board guidance that has been retired is published below. Submissions received are available on the Past Consultations page.
The retired codes and guidelines have not been removed from the Board’s website because complaints or concerns made about pharmacists during the time the Board guidance was in effect may still be subject to the notifications process.
