Pharmacists in private sector told to register

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Health Director Dato’ Dr Zainul Hamzah said pharmacists wishing to work in the private sector in Sabah will be required to register themselves with the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia, under Type A Licence.

The ruling, which comes into effect on Nov 1, empowers the Sabah Health Director as the licensing officer, under Section 26(4) of the Poisons Act 1952 (Revised 1989).

It does not apply to any pharmacist who has been previously issued with a Type A Licence before Nov 1.

Further details are available from the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia Secretariat (tel. 03-7968 2200) or Sabah Pharmacy Enforcement Office, tel. 088-231609/231610/257258 (Kota Kinabalu), 089-668671 (Sandakan), or 089-775094/759379 (Tawau).
