Renewal of Practising Certificate

1. New Practising Certificate Application

A Practising Certificate (PC) Application has to be submitted with every new registration application, together with a payment of S$500 for 2 years or part thereof, depending on the date of application. The PC has a fixed 2-year cycle validity period (1 Jan 2009 to 31 Dec 2010; 1 Jan 2011 to 31 Dec 2012; 1 Jan 2013 to 31 Dec 2014; 1 Jan 2017 to 31 Dec 2018; and so on).

Pharmacists with PCs that are expired for less than 5 years may apply for late renewal with a late fee of S$200 in addition to the PC renewal fees. Pharmacists who do not renew their PCs for a continuous period of 5 years and more will have their names removed from the Register of Pharmacists and are required to apply for Restoration if they wish to apply for PC.

3. PC Renewal for 2019/2020
