Welcome to the website of the Victorian Pharmacy Authority (VPA) which is the successor in law to the Pharmacy Board of Victoria. The VPA is responsible for administration of the Pharmacy Regulation Act 2010 (the Act) which provides for the regulation of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots.
The Act requires the owners of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots to hold a licence and the premises of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots to be registered.

Attachment: VPA BUSINESS PLAN 2015.pdf
The VPA Business Plan is an internal document that aims to flesh out how the Authority will achieve its strategic plan. The business plan builds on the strategic plan and is intended as a “direction paper” with a focus on priorities to address significant changes and challenges in the pharmacy environment. Material available elsewhere is not reproduced here.
NB. The registration of pharmacists and the handling of complaints about the conduct or health of a pharmacist is the responsibility of the Pharmacy Board of Australia which has its services administered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. (click here for more)
