Schedules

Alphabetical order

1  (1) The drug schedules are printed in an alphabetical format to simplify the process of locating each individual drug entry and determining its status in British Columbia.

(2) Each entry is preceded by a code noted as 1, 1A, 2, 3 or 4, in which

1 = Schedule I
1A = Triplicate/Duplicate Prescription Program
2 = Schedule II
3 = Schedule III
4 = Schedule IV.

Sale of drugs

2  (1) Drugs listed in Schedules I, IA, II, III and IV must be sold from licensed pharmacies.

(2) Unscheduled drugs may be sold from non-pharmacy outlets.

(3) The various schedules are differentiated as follows:

Schedule I (Prescription): Schedule I drugs require a prescription for sale and are provided to the public by a pharmacist following the diagnosis and professional intervention of a practitioner. The sale is controlled in a regulated environment as defined by provincial pharmacy legislation. Entries followed by a "V" superscript may be sold without having received a prescription if

(a) the drug is in a form not suitable for human use, or

(b) the main panel of the manufacturer's inner label and the manufacturer's outer label carry, in both official languages, the statement "For Veterinary Use Only" or "For Agricultural Use Only" immediately following or preceding the brand name, proper name or common name, in type size not less than one-half as large as the largest type on the label, and the product is sold in the original manufacturer's container.

Schedule IA (Triplicate/Duplicate Prescription Program): Drugs which may be sold by a pharmacist to a practitioner or on the prescription of a practitioner in accordance with Bylaw 5 (31) (6) of the bylaws to the Pharmacists, Pharmacy Operations and Drug Scheduling Act.

Schedule II (Professional Service Area): Drugs which may be sold by a pharmacist on a non-prescription basis and which must be retained within the Professional Service Area of the pharmacy where there is no public access and no opportunity for patient self-selection.

Schedule III (Professional Products Area): Drugs which may be sold by a pharmacist to any person from the self-selection Professional Products Area of a licensed pharmacy.

Schedule IV (Prescription by Pharmacist): Drugs which may be prescribed by a pharmacist in accordance with guidelines approved by the Council.

Unscheduled (Non-pharmacy Sale): Drugs which may be sold by a non-pharmacist to any person.
