SAPC - Compliance
The Pharmacy Act requires of the Registrar to keep up-to-date accurate registers of persons registered to practise the calling of pharmacy in South Africa. The accuracy of the details on the registers is required for verification of registration and registration details, as well as the communication of Council decisions and changes in legislation and procedures to registered persons.

It is a legal requirement to update personal details

In terms of Section 23(1)(e) of the Pharmacy Act, 53 of 1974, “the Council may direct the registrar to remove from the register the name of any person who has failed to furnish the Registrar, within a period of 30 days, with such information as the registrar may require in terms of regulations made under this Act.”

It is your responsibility as a registered person to ensure that your information on the SAPC registers is correct at all times.

You can check and confirm your information on your secure profile on the SAPC website and update it immediately should something change. Information you are able to update on the secure site is the following – telephone number(s), e-mail address, courier address, physical and/or postal address. If you need to change any other information, you have to submit to Council a duly completed application form and attach the required documents.

Should you require any assistance in updating your information with Council, please contact Customer Care on 0861 72 72 00 or send an e-mail to
