and Salam 1Malaysia,
I wish to take this opportunity to inform that the Pharmaceutical Services
Division, Ministry of Health Malaysia (PSD MOH) proposes the Pharmacy Bill to
replace the pre-independence legislations namely the Registration of Pharmacists
Act 1951, Poisons Act 1952, Sale of Drugs Act 1952, the Medicines (Advertisement
and Sale) Act 1956. At present, these legislations have become outdated to meet
the current challenges.
in the existing legislations have posed a major setback to PSD MOH in tackling
public complaints on the issue of counterfeited, adulterated and unregistered
a view in safeguarding public interest, PSD MOH is proposing the Pharmacy Bill.
Therefore, PSD MOH would like to request feedback from the general public and
stakeholders including pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, pharmaceutical
associations and higher education institutions.
