Fitness to Practise Committees
The Pharmacy (1976 Order) (Amendment) Order (Northern Ireland) 2012 and the Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland (Fitness to Practise and Disqualification) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2012 provide for the establishment, in statute, of two fitness to practise committees; Scrutiny Committee and Statutory Committee.
Scrutiny and Statutory Committee members are appointed through an independent process for a four year period.
The Scrutiny Committee
The Scrutiny Committee considers concerns about a registrants fitness to practise, it has the power to dismiss a case, give advice, issue warnings and agree undertakings if appropriate. It must refer more serious cases to the Statutory Committee.

The Statutory Committee
The Statutory Committee makes judgements on whether a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired for reasons concerning their conduct, professional performance or health. All meetings are held in public (except for health related cases). The Statutory Committee has the power to issue formal warnings, agree undertakings, place conditions on the practice of a pharmacist, impose suspension and remove registrants from the Register.
