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.

The Victorian Pharmacy Authority (VPA) has just published the Fourth Annual Report and this is accessible on the VPA website.I commend the Report as a must read for all community pharmacy owners and Directors of pharmacy departments, and for discussion with your staff.
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.
