Dispensing License
  • Legal review completed
  • Proposals to still be tested at the DG level :
    • In terms of the Medicines Act, section 21 authorisations are granted with permission to dispense at such sites, without the site and professionals requiring a dispensing licence, but that conditions be set to ensure the trial medication is kept in line with proper Good Pharmacy Practice principles. This power would need to be exercised by the MCC. Report proposal to be discussed with the DG of DOH to agree on a solution
    • That nurses in clinical trial sites obtain dispensing licences in terms of section 22C to the Medicines Act, dispensing the medicine on the prescription of the investigator(s) at the site. This power would be exercised by the DG (DoH).
    • That nurses in clinical trial sites be designated under the special circumstances envisaged by section 56(6) of the 2005-Nursing Act. This designation would require the DG to consult with the Pharmacy Council prior to making such a designation
