Form A Poisons Licence audits

A regulatory audit would be conducted according to the requirements stipulated in the Poisons Act and Rules. 

The licence will only be approved and issued 10 working days from date of audit close out, if your company has been found to have complied with the relevant requirements.

After licence approval, regular routine audits will be conducted to assess your company’s continued compliance. The frequency of the routine audit would depend on risk factors like the activities conducted by your company and your compliance level with the regulatory requirements. Unannounced audits may also be conducted.
