preparations and admixtures containing any proportion of any substance listed in this schedule:

salts and esters of any substance listed in this schedule:

preparations or extracts of biological materials listed in this schedule:

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 6 August 2015, replace Schedule 1 of the Medicines Regulations 1984 (the principal regulations). New Schedule 1 sets out an updated list of specified medicines and classes of medicines that are declared to be prescription medicines, restricted medicines, or pharmacy-only medicines under the Medicines Act 1981 (the Act).

The updated list includes medicines that the Minister of Health has previously classified as prescription medicines, etc, by Gazette notice made under section 106 of the Act (see Classification of Medicines (Gazette 2015-go984) and Classification of Medicines (Gazette 2014-go7770)). Gazette notices made under section 106 override any inconsistent classification of medicines in the principal regulations, but they do not amend the principal regulations and they cease to have effect after a period of 6 months (if not revoked sooner).

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 30 July 2015.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Health.
