Board of Pharmacy


The Board of Pharmaceutical Examiners was created on January 26, 1903 by virtue of Public Act No. 597 under the Department of Interior. The members were appointed by the Commissioner of Public Health upon the advice and consent of the Board of Health.

When Public Act No. 4007 was enacted on December 5, 1932, the executive department was reorganized, placing the Board of Pharmaceutical Examiners under the Department of Public Instruction.

On June 21, 1969, Republic Act No. 5921, “An Act to Regulate the Practice and Setting Standards of Pharmaceutical Education in the Philippines and Other Purposes,” was enacted creating the Board of Pharmacy.
