Welcome to the website of the Victorian Pharmacy Authority (VPA) which is the successor in law to the Pharmacy Board of Victoria. The VPA is responsible for administration of the Pharmacy Regulation Act 2010 (the Act) which provides for the regulation of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots.


The Act requires the owners of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots to hold a licence and the premises of pharmacy businesses, pharmacy departments and pharmacy depots to be registered.

Complaints
If you wish to make a complaint about a pharmacy owner or pharmacy premises, please send your complaint by email or post or contact the office for further advice.

NB. The registration of pharmacists and the handling of complaints about the conduct or health of a pharmacist is the responsibility of the Pharmacy Board of Australia which has its services administered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. (click here for more)
