A Practical Guide to Pharmacy and Health Products Regulation
Pharmapedia is a ground-breaking online guide to pharmacy and health products’ compliance developed for those who negotiate a complex array of health products and health professions legislation, guidelines, regulations, rules and policies.
This online solution integrates the vast and complex array of health products and health professions legislation, together with guidelines, regulations, rules and policies from the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) into an all-in-one practical regulatory toolkit.
Pharmapedia complies with the requirements of the South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) and SAHPRA, formerly known as the Medicines Control Council (MCC), for compulsory on-site legal texts.
How will Pharmapedia help users?
Pharmapedia covers all aspects of the control of registration, manufacture, distribution, storage and dispensing of medicines, medical devices, in-vitro diagnostic products and scheduled substances, as well as provisions for licensing and conducting pharmacies, dispensing facilities and pharmaceutical companies.
It collates the SAPC, HPCSA, SAHPRA/MCC and other guidelines, intuitively cross-referenced under subject headings, processes and themes for ease of use. In addition to the regulatory information, Pharmapedia includes Val Beaumont’s useful Practice Notes and Quick Guides which consolidate the guidelines and clarify the implementation of legislation and compliance requirements, ranging from promotion and advertising, through to selling, prescribing and dispensing, generic substitution, recall or destruction of medicines and good pharmacy, wholesale and manufacturing practices. Detailed indexing and extensive cross-referencing take Pharmapedia from a compulsory textbook to an empowering compliance solution.
