Referral to a Panel of the Registration Committee
If for any reason you do not meet all of the requirements for a Certificate of Registration as a student, intern, pharmacist or pharmacy technician as set out in the Registration Regulations, your application will be referred to a panel of the Registration Committee. You will be notified if the Registrar refers your file to a panel and you will be given an opportunity to provide further written information to the panel. You may also request to have a panel review your application if you wish to appeal a decision related to a requirement that is both set and administered by the College (e.g. Structured Practical Training or the Jurisprudence examination) The panel will review your application and all relevant information before making its decision. Panels consider applications on a case by case basis. Any material that you provide to the College in support of your application will be provided to the panel.
Please note, that if you wish to appeal a decision related to a registration requirement that is set and/or administered by a third party (e.g. the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada), you are required to follow the appeal process in place for that organization.
