The Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland (PSI), the pharmacy regulator, is tasked with protecting the health, safety, and wellbeing of patients, and the public, by regulating pharmacists and pharmacies in Ireland. Read more about the PSI’s role and functions.

As part of its on-going commitment to the Government’s Open Data Strategy, the PSI has appointed an Open Data Liaison Officer, who can be reached at opendata@psi.ie and will assist you with any open data related queries you may have. The PSI publishes a number of datasets on an open access basis, (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0) on this webpage and on data.gov.ie. These are updated each month.
