The Medicines and Related Substances Control Amendment Act 90 of 1997 (the amendment Act) which amended the Medicines and Related Substances Control Act J 0 I of 1965 (the main Act) has drawn criticism from a number of sources. A recent conference. 'Pharmecon SA '98', was organised by the Institute of International Research and held on 29 and 30 June 1998 to discuss the amendment Act. This article develops some of the points which I made on two sections of the amendment Act at that conference and raises the question of whether more consideration should be given by ministerial departments, legal advisers thereto, other interested parties and, more particularly, by attorneys to potential major changes in the law before those changes are promulgated.
