2017 Fees payable to Council
Fees payable to the South African Pharmacy Council for the 2017 financial year. Please note that if you want your registration to be effective from 1 January 2017, you should pay the fees scheduled for 2017 and not for 2016.
In terms of section 4(zG) of the Pharmacy Act, 53 of 1974, as amended, Council may determine the fees payable to Council without publication thereof in regulations. In practice, this would mean that any new fees or amendments to existing fees will be determined annually by Council. As in the past, all efforts are made to curtail costs and keep any increases in fees to the minimum.
