Our committees

The Pharmacy Order 2010 makes provision for three statutory committees investigating fitness to practise and appeals.

We took the view that additional non-statutory committees should be kept to a minimum to help minimise bureaucracy, focus resources on outcomes and make sure that responsibilities are clear.

Statutory committees

Our statutory committees carry out its regulatory functions of investigating and deciding on registrants' fitness to practice, and conducting registration appeals. The committees were established by the Pharmacy Order 2010.

Investigating committee

This committee considers allegations that a registrant's fitness to practise is impaired and decides whether to refer a case to the fitness to practise committee for a full inquiry.

Fitness to practise committee

This committee makes decisions in cases where a registrant's fitness to practise may be impaired, for reasons concerning their conduct, professional performance or health.

Appeals committee

This committee considers appeals of certain types of decision relating to applications for registration and registration status as listed in article 39 of the Pharmacy Order 2010.

Non-statutory committees

In addition to the three statutory committees that are specified in the legislation, have the following non-statutory committees:

Audit and risk committee

The audit and risk committee supports the governing council by reviewing internal and external audit arrangements and assuring our risk management and internal control arrangements.

Remuneration committee

The committee provides advice to the council on remuneration for our associates, Council members and staff.

Appointments Committee

The appointments committee is responsible for the selection and recruitment of statutory committee members.
