The members and staff of the Victorian Pharmacy Authority are deeply saddened at the recent passing of former Registrar Stephen Marty. Steve was an inspiring leader and mentor to all of us.

Steve retired in July 2015 having served in the position of Registrar since 1998 (up until 2010 as Registrar of the Pharmacy Board of Victoria). He was originally employed by the Victorian Board in 1989 as the first Education Pharmacist in a Pharmacy Board and introduced the competency-based assessment process at the registration examination.

Steve was instrumental in framing the Pharmacy Practice Act 2004, the Health Professions Registration Act 2005 and ultimately the Pharmacy Regulation Act 2010 and its effective administration.

Steve was a champion of the pharmacy profession. His knowledge of the regulation of the profession was second to none and he worked tirelessly to encourage high standards through education at all levels. He earned the trust and respect of governments, pharmacy organisations and the community through his broad activities.

He was also the inaugural Chair of the Pharmacy Board of Australia from 2009 until his retirement in 2015.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Steve's family.
