PREFACE

 

 

The Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Drugs and Poisons is the decisions of the National Drugs and Poisons Schedule Committee, regarding classification of drugs and poisons into Schedules for inclusion in the relevant legislation of the States and Territories. It also includes model provisions about containers and labels, and recommendations about other controls on drugs and poisons.

 

This document is presented with a view to promoting uniform scheduling of substances and uniform labelling and packaging requirements throughout Australia.

 



INTRODUCTION

 

 

CLASSIFICATION

 

Drugs and poisons are classified according to the Schedules in which they are included.  The following is a general description of the Schedules.  For the legal definitions, however, it is necessary to check with the relevant State or Territory Authority.

 

      Schedule 1.   [This Schedule is intentionally blank.]

 

      Schedule 2.   Pharmacy Medicine – Substances, the safe use of which may require advice from a pharmacist and which should be available from a pharmacy or, where a pharmacy service is not available, from a licensed person.

 

      Schedule 3.   Pharmacist Only Medicine – Substances, the safe use of which requires professional advice but which should be available to the public from a pharmacist without a prescription.

 

      Schedule 4.   Prescription Only Medicine, or Prescription Animal Remedy – Substances, the use or supply of which should be by or on the order of persons permitted by State or Territory legislation to prescribe and should be available from a pharmacist on prescription.

 

      Schedule 5.   Caution – Substances with a low potential for causing harm, the extent of which can be reduced through the use of appropriate packaging with simple warnings and safety directions on the label.

 

      Schedule 6.   Poison – Substances with a moderate potential for causing harm, the extent of which can be reduced through the use of distinctive packaging with strong warnings and safety directions on the label.

 

      Schedule 7.   Dangerous Poison – Substances with a high potential for causing harm at low exposure and which require special precautions during manufacture, handling or use.  These poisons should be available only to specialised or authorised users who have the skills necessary to handle them safely.  Special regulations restricting their availability, possession, storage or use may apply.

 

      Schedule 8.   Controlled Drug – Substances which should be available for use but require restriction of manufacture, supply, distribution, possession and use to reduce abuse, misuse and physical or psychological dependence.

 

      Schedule 9.   Prohibited Substance – Substances which may be abused or misused, the manufacture, possession, sale or use of which should be prohibited by law except when required for medical or scientific research, or for analytical, teaching or training purposes with approval of Commonwealth and/or State or Territory Health Authorities.

 


Availability of drugs and poisons

 

The purpose of classification is to group drugs and poisons into Schedules that require similar regulatory controls over their availability.

 

These Schedules have been developed over a long period and contain drugs and poisons that may be obsolete for various reasons.  Also as part of the move to harmonise the Australian and New Zealand classifications many substances have been added to the Schedules for that purpose, irrespective of their availability in either country.

 

Inclusion of a drug or poison in a Schedule indicates the degree of control required if it is marketed.  It does not indicate:

 

              •          that the drug or poison is available; nor

 

              •          that it has been approved or is efficacious for any use that may be specified                                                 in a Schedule,

 

nor does it negate any obligation for registration of a therapeutic good or an agricultural or veterinary chemical containing that drug or poison.

 

Preparations containing poisons listed in two or more schedules.

 

If a preparation contains two or more poisons, the provisions relating to each of the Schedules in which those poisons are included apply.

 

Where it is not possible to comply both with a provision relating to one of those Schedules and with a provision relating to another of those Schedules, the provision of the more restrictive Schedule applies, unless a contrary intention is indicated in the Schedules or relevant legislation.

 

The Schedules listed in order of greatest to least restriction are 9, 8, 4, 7, 3, 2, 6, 5.
Schedule 1 is not currently in use.

 


 

PRINCIPLES OF SCHEDULING

 

PRINCIPLES OF SCHEDULING

 

Poisons are not scheduled on the basis of a universal scale of toxicity. Although toxicity is one of the factors considered, and is itself a complex of factors, the decision to include a substance in a particular Schedule also takes into account many other criteria such as the purpose of use, potential for abuse, safety in use and the need for the substance.

 

This Standard now lists poisons in nine Schedules according to the degree of control recommended to be exercised over their availability to the public.

 

Poisons for therapeutic use (drugs) are included in Schedules 2, 3, 4 and 8 with progression through these schedules signifying increasingly strict controls.

 

For agricultural, domestic and industrial poisons Schedules 5, 6 and 7 represent increasingly strict container and labelling requirements with special regulatory controls over the availability of the poisons listed in Schedule 7.

 

Schedule 9 contains substances that should be available only for medical or scientific research including clinical trials conducted with the approval of Commonwealth and/or State/Territory Health Authorities. Although appearing as a Schedule in this Standard the method by which it is implemented in the States/Territories may vary.

 

Substances in products which have been considered for scheduling but have been exempted from this standard may be listed in either Appendix A (general exemptions) or Appendix B (substances considered not to require control by scheduling).

 

Appendix C contains a list of substances or preparations, the sale, supply or use of which should be prohibited because of their known dangerous properties. It is recommended that provisions of this appendix be put into effect through inclusion of the substances in appropriate State and Territory legislation.

 

READING THE SCHEDULES

 

Schedule entries have been designed to be as simple as possible while retaining readability, legal integrity and as much freedom from ambiguity and contradiction as possible. As a result they are expressed in a number of ways, though this number has been kept to a minimum. It is necessary to keep this variety of expression in mind when searching or interpreting Schedule entries.

 

Firstly, poisons are now scheduled individually using their approved names wherever practicable although exceptions are necessary in some cases. Some of those are mentioned overleaf. Older group entries are being revised and replaced by individual entries as time permits although in some of these cases a group term has also been retained to deal with any members of the group or class that may have escaped attention but should be scheduled.

 


Secondly, schedule entries have been expressed in either positive or negative terms and care must be taken to distinguish between the two different forms of expression. Thus, selenium is in Schedule 6 only when one of the clauses in this schedule entry applies, while fluorides are in Schedule 6 unless one of the exempting clauses applies.

 

Where exceptions are included in an entry these have been emphasised by printing the word “except” in bold type.

 

Where the schedule entries for a poison make a specific exclusion or exemption, the requirements of this Standard do not apply to that poison within the constraints of that exclusion or exemption although controls under other legislation such as pesticide registration may apply.

 

Where a schedule entry for a poison requires a specific statement to be included on a label as a condition for a product to qualify for an exemption (‘reverse scheduling’), then in cases where it is impracticable for a supplier to use the exact wording of such a statement, its wording may be varied provided that the full intent and meaning of the statement is not changed.

 

Where a poison has been included in more than one Schedule the principal entry, where practicable, has been included in the most restrictive Schedule with references to the other Schedule(s) involved.

 

It is important to remember that a Schedule entry includes preparations containing the poison in any concentration and all salts and derivatives of the poison unless it specifically states otherwise. (See Interpretation PART 1 [paragraph 1(2)]).

 

It is important to note that a substance is not classed as a derivative on the basis of a single, prescriptive set of criteria.  Classification of a substance as a derivative of a Scheduled poison relies on a balanced consideration of factors to decide if a substance has a similar nature (e.g. structurally, pharmacologically, toxicologically) to a Scheduled poison or is readily converted (either physically or chemically) to a Scheduled poison.  However, a substance is only considered a derivative of a Scheduled poison if it is not individually listed elsewhere in the Schedules, or captured by a more restrictive group or class entry.  Additionally, some entries specifically exclude derivatives.  Once a substance is determined to be a derivative of a Scheduled poison, the same scheduling requirements as the Scheduled poison, including limits on access, supply and availability, will apply.

 


Finally, when using the Standard to determine the scheduling status of a poison it may be necessary to search each relevant Schedule as well as Appendices A, B and C and the Index. In this process if the poison is not found under its “approved name” it may be shown under a group term such as:

 

             Group                                                          Example

 

             the parent acid of salts                             “oxalic acid” to find sodium oxalate

 

             the radical of a salt                                    “chromates” to find potassium chromate

 

             the element                                                 “arsenic” to find arsenic trioxide

 

             a chemical group with similar                  “hydrocarbons, liquid” to find kerosene

             toxicological or pharmacological

             activity

 

             a pharmacological group                          “anabolic steroidal agents” to find

                                                                                  “androsterone”
