2019 Fees payable to Council
The South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) reminds the profession of the newly published schedule of 2019 Fees payable to Council. For the registration of professionals, students, assessors, as well as establishments to be effective from 1 January 2019, the 2019 fees as scheduled should be paid by the indicated due dates. Paying 2018 fees for 2019 would result in the registration lapsing.
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 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.
It is imperative that pharmacy professionals note the correct fees payable for 2019, as paying the incorrect fees may result in deregistration.

Are your annual fees up to date?
The SAPC schedules payment due dates of the annual prescribed fees so that the fees for the different professional categories become due at varied times during the year. The SAPC also grants members a three-month grace period in which to settle the fees. The table below shows the annual payment dates for each of the categories.
The SAPC thanks those who have already paid their 2019 fees, and cautions members who fail to pay timeously that they may face the risk of having their names removed from the register. Settle your fees timeously to avoid the inconvenience of having to restore your name to the register.
