Current version for 1 July 2017 to date (accessed 24 September 2017 at 20:25)
Part 2 Division 1 Clause 7
7   Packaging and labelling generally
(1)  A dealer who supplies a poison must ensure that the poison is packaged and labelled:
(a)  in accordance with the relevant provisions of the current Poisons Standard, and
(b)  in the case of a poison to which Therapeutic Goods Order No. 80 applies, in accordance with that Order.
(2)  This clause does not apply to the labelling of a substance that is supplied by an authorised practitioner or pharmacist so long as the substance is supplied in a package that is labelled in accordance with the requirements of Appendix A.
(3)  A pharmacist who supplies any quantity of a Schedule 2 or 3 substance on prescription must ensure that the substance is supplied in a package that is labelled in accordance with the requirements of Appendix A instead of in accordance with the requirements of subclause (1).
(4)  Despite subclause (1), an authorised practitioner or pharmacist who supplies a poison to a person who, in the opinion of the authorised practitioner or pharmacist, would suffer undue hardship through difficulty in opening a container that is packaged in accordance with Therapeutic Goods Order No. 80, is not required to package the poison in accordance with that Order.
Maximum penalty: 10 penalty units.
