In terms of Regulation 106 of the Regulations relating to the registration of persons and the maintenance of registers, every person registered in terms of the regulations must renew such registration annually by paying the annual fee(s) as determined by Council. The annual fee due dates each year are as follows:
In terms of Section 23 (d) of the Pharmacy Act, 53 of 1974, a person may be removed from the register if they have failed to pay to the Council within three months as from the date on which it became due for payment, any prescribed annual fee.
It is important to note that all annual fees for the year 2019 should already be paid. Failure to pay an annual fee may result in removal from the register. Should you have been removed from the register due to non-payment of annual fees and wish to be reinstated on the register, you will be required to pay the annual fee for the year in which you were de-registered for non-payment, a restoration fee, as well as the annual fee for the year in which you are registering.
The South African Pharmacy Council does send out reminders of annual fees due via SMS and e-mail, according to the information provided on the register. It remains the responsibility of the individual to ensure that their contact information (i.e. cell phone number and e-mail address) is correct on the register at all times. You are able to update your information via your secure profile on the SAPC website.
