Pharmacists and Pharmaceutical Assistants

Anyone wishing to practise as a pharmacist in Ireland must first register with the PSI. Our Registration and Qualification Recognition Unit is responsible for processing all registration applications and endeavours to process all applications in a timely, efficient and transparent manner.

First Time Registration

Details of how you can apply for registration for the first time in Ireland with the PSI. There are different routes of registration for pharmacists depending on where a person has graduated and trained as a pharmacist.

Continued Registration

Pharmacists and pharmaceutical assistants wishing to remain on the register to practice in Ireland must apply on an annual basis for continued registration and pay an annual fee.

Continuing Professional Development

In order to be accepted for continued registration, all pharmacists must complete a declaration on an annual basis that they undertake to maintain appropriate experience in the practice of pharmacy, keep up-to-date of continuing education and professional developments in the profession of pharmacy, and undertake appropriate continuing professional development relevant to the practice of pharmacy.

Changes to Registration Details

Registrants can make changes to personal details held by the PSI (for example; professional, correspondence and email addresses) using the online Registrant login section. It is important that registrants keep their contact details and other information updated for the public registers.

Cancelling your Registration

If you no longer wish to be registered with the PSI or if you are considering retiring from the Register of Pharmacists or Pharmaceutical Assistants, you can voluntarily cancel your registration with the PSI on request.

Restoring your Registration

If you wish to restore your name to the Register, having previously withdrawn, you should complete the restoration form and return it to the PSI.

Certificates of Confirmation of Qualification and/or Current Professional Status

If you are applying for registration in another country, you may need a Certificate of Confirmation of Qualification (CCQ) and/or Current Professional Status (CCPS) to be sent on your behalf to a relevant authority by the PSI.

Supervising and Superintendent Pharmacists

Each pharmacy must have a superintendent and a supervising pharmacist. Changes to the supervising and superintendent pharmacist in a pharmacy must be notified to the PSI by submitting an application form.

Certificates of Registration

Certificates of Registration are issued once applications for registration or continued registration, including fees, have been processed.
