Current Governing Documents

Note re: Changes to Governance Documents 2018

At the meeting held on 22nd March 2018 RPS Assembly agreed that the following amendments to the Society's Regulations would take effect from 8th June. Any members who wished to comment to the Assembly on the proposed changes were given the opportunity to do so.

i) Regulations

A new Regulations document replaced the old version. Schedules to the Regulations as a stand-alone document were discontinued, with the main relevant governance information incorporated into the new Regulations document. However, any changes in fees and subscriptions must still be gazetted in draft for 60 days on the RPS website and in the Pharmaceutical Journal prior to adoption in order for representations from the Membership to be solicited.
