In accordance with commitments under the 1995 Competition Principles Agreement, a review has been commissioned by State, Territory and Commonwealth governments to examine State and Territory legislation relating to pharmacy ownership and registration of pharmacists, together with Commonwealth legislation relating to regulation of the location of the premises of pharmacists approved to supply pharmaceutical benefits.
The Review was commissioned by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in accordance with commitments made under the National Competition Policy. It provided a Preliminary Report to COAG in November 1999, and a Final Report in February 2000.
The Final Report was publicly released by the Council of Australian Governments on 18 February 1999. It contains the Review's analysis, findings and recommendations on its Terms of Reference. It also includes assessments of each State and Territory Act referred to it against the framework of the Review's recommendations.
The Review was given the task under the National Competition Policy to examine collectively specified Commonwealth, State and Territory legislation. It was asked particularly to assess effects of that legislation on competition in the regulatory areas of the ownership of pharmacies, the location of pharmacies for the purposes of the Commonwealth Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, and the registration of pharmacists.
