Quality use of medicines

Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency
operations are governed by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009, which came into effect on 1 July 2010. From this date, for the first time in Australia, 10 health professions became regulated under nationally consistent legislation. On 1 July 2012 4 more health professions were incorporated under the National Law.
AHPRA supports the 14 National Boards that are responsible for regulating the 14 health professions. The primary role of the Boards is to protect the public and they set standards and policies that all registered health practitioners must meet.
More information about the scheme is available within Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (South Australia) Act 2010.
