Proof of Eligibility
Proof of Eligibility is required from the direct owners, indirect owners and the manager of a pharmacy when they:
- Apply for a new pharmacy licence;
- Renew or reinstate a pharmacy licence.
Proof of eligibility is also required from the newly appointed indirect owner or manager before a change of direct owner or manager occurs.
Proof of Eligibility consists of two components:
- An annual attestation; and
- A Criminal Record History submission every 5 years.
Together, they provide the information of whether a direct owner, an indirect owner or manager meets the eligibility criteria in the Pharmacy Operations and Drug Scheduling Act.
Refer to the “Who Needs to Submit Proof of Eligibility” section in the Pharmacy Licensure Guide to determine who is required to submit their Proof of Eligibility based on their relationship and role with the pharmacy.
