Red card for the College of Pharmacists and the state. The Court of Auditors, in référé1 published on Tuesday denounced the "inertia" of the state who lack a framework for the College of Pharmacists in particular in "litigation and disciplines." In short, side control and sanctions pharmacies in violation. To such an extent that "the disciplinary role of the order is weakening." Some regional councils of the order of pharmacists and record "almost none" complaint. No wonder, because the number of controlled drug was almost halved between 2007 and 2009. In short, drug stores2 today is no longer controlled on average every 27 years!
The situation has worsened since 2009 and the creation of regional health agencies (ARS), relays the Ministry of Health in the regions, the Court noted. The 133 inspectors pharmacists working for ARS are actually allocate that … 27% of their time working the controls. Involved? The ARS affect other missions, mainly administrative, which have nothing to do with their heart business. The order is therefore not the only culprit. To remedy the situation, the judges demanded "a rigorous management controls" by the State, "in terms of public health risks as cost for health insurance guaranteed payday loan."
"Passivity of the government" on the other hand could be costly to the College of Pharmacists. Not having been warned in time to a change in legislation in the biomedical field, the College may have to pay a fine of 5 million from the European Commission. This failure of 2007, sliding in response the Ministry of Social Affairs. Perhaps, but this is just the beginning: "This litigation, should it be lost, could expose the College to requests for damages amounting to tens of millions of euros."
The College of Pharmacists also benefits at the margin, the inertia of the state. Indeed, it does not solve all the payroll taxes it should. And the administration did not press him to claim. If the order was paid from 2010 to the CSG and CRDS on compensation paid to its members, the contributions on wages had not been paid between 2009 and 2012. In its response to the Court of Auditors, the Ministry of Social Affairs promises Urssaf will recover the monies owed if they are not resolved quickly.
