Welcome to PRASA
The Pharmacy Regulation Authority SA (PRASA) is the regulatory agency responsible for the administration of the provisions, related to pharmacies, contained in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (South Australia) Act 2010.
The pharmacy related provisions of the Act deal with the regulation of pharmacy premises (both in the private and public sector), pharmacy businesses, pharmacy services providers (sole proprietors, pharmacy companies and pharmacy trusts) and pharmacy depots. Under the provisions of the Act pharmacy services providers, pharmacy premises and pharmacy depots are required to be registered and then to seek re-registration on an annual basis
PRASA is responsible for the handling of complaints raised in relation to the conduct of a pharmacy services provider. However, the handling of complaints about the conduct, or health, of an individual pharmacist is the responsibility of the Pharmacy Board of Australia and its services arm the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). AHPRA can be reached on 1300 419 495 or at its website www.ahpra.gov.au.
