1) To discuss the issue of supply of Poisons to Farms to be by prescriptions only.
(Issue raised by a member as per extract of letter below
I hope someone could help me with this:
With reference to Poison Act Section 15(2e), doesn't it mean a wholesaler with License A could sell all types of Poison except gp A to a farmer/farming company? The Licensing Officers/Pharmacists in Penang do not think that farmers belong to the group 'tradesman' and that the farmers could only get premix and other Part I poisons by prescription thru a vet. Is this practice the same in other states?)
2) To increase the membership of the Committee
3) To organize a dialogue session for pharmacist engaged in the veterinary industry.
4) To organize continuing education for veterinary phamacist
