Medicines and poisons are classified into Schedules (1 to 9) and listed in the Australian Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP). Legislative controls for ‘scheduled’ medicines and poisons vary according to the risks associated with substances listed in each schedule. These controls relate to possession, storage, use, supply, prescription, administration, destruction, recording of transactions, manufacture plus labelling and packaging requirements.
