Sep 23,2016 / News / Johannesburg Seminar


The Medicines and Related Substances Amendment Bill is currently before the National Assembly on its progression through the legislative process.

Are you ready to meet the altered landscape of regulation pertaining to medicines, complementary medicines, medical devices and interaction with a brand new regulator?

This seminar plans to introduce participants to the provisions of the Bill and changes to the law in order to prepare participants for the expected paradigm shifts in the regulatory regime currently in place under the Medicines and Related Substances Act No. 101 of 1965, as amended.

Grab a spot and ensure you are in a position to anticipate, deal with and plan for regulatory change.
The content will cover all aspects of the Bill and proposed regulations and address all of the changes to our regulatory regime including, but not limited to, the following:

· duties and responsibilities of the responsible and authorised persons;
· the powers of the South African Health Products Regulatory Agency (SAHPRA);
· required regulatory and decision-making processes for the registration of health products;
· complementary medicines update; and
· legislation and healthcare law update.

The seminar will also examine the proposed National Public Health Institute of South Africa as is put forward in a Bill published on 11 November 2015 and the role of such an institution in the delivery of healthcare to South Africans.
Who should attend: Anyone involved in the development, sale, distribution, marketing, registration, dispensing and use of safe and effective healthcare and health products will benefit from attending.
