In light of the Australian Association of Consultant Pharmacy’s (AACP) imminent closure on 31 December 2022, the Department of Health and Aged Care (the Department) will implement a transition period whereby the AACP Medicine Review Numbers (MRNs) that are valid as of 31 December 2022, will remain valid until 30 June 2023 within the Pharmacy Programs Administrator (PPA) Portal. This will ensure currently Accredited Pharmacists can continue to utilise their existing AACP Accreditation to provide services.

During this transition period, the Department will review options available in regards to Pharmacist Accreditation. We will keep you updated on further developments in relation to this as it becomes available.
