In terms of Section 39 of the Pharmacy Act 53/1974 ("the Act"), among others, the South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) may "enquire into any matter which is brought to the attention of the Council, or any complaint, charge or allegation of improper or disgraceful conduct against any person registered in terms of this Act". Although the SAPC is fully empowered in law to enquire into any matter relating to, for example, alleged unprofessional conduct by a person registered with it, such an enquiry must follow a prescribed process to ensure that the best interests of both the registered person and the complainant are served.
