Proposed Regulatory Fees and Licensing Framework for Pharmacy Ownership in Queensland

This Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement has been prepared by the Queensland Department of Health to assess impacts of options arising from the Government Response to the Committee Report No. 12 – Inquiry into the establishment of a pharmacy council and transfer of pharmacy ownership in Queensland.   

The Consultation RIS discusses whether to:

  • establish a new licensing framework to monitor, and where necessary, enforce compliance with the ownership requirements in the PBO Act;
  • prescribe licensing fees as part of the new licensing framework;
  • prescribe a fee to fund the Queensland Pharmacy Council (Council) as an advisory body to provide advice to the Deputy Premier, Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services (the Deputy Premier) and Queensland Health about the administration and enforcement of compliance with the PBO Act, and to make recommendations to Queensland Health about the transfers of pharmacy businesses, as required; and
  • publish a register containing information about the ownership and location of pharmacy businesses.
