These Regulations further amend the Medicines (Pharmacies) (Applications for Registration and Fees) Regulations 1973 ("the principal Regulations") as follows—

    (a) regulation 2(a) increases the fees for registration of premises at which a retail pharmacy business is, or is to be, carried on from £474 to £492 (where the premises are in Great Britain) and from £93 to £97 (where the premises are in Northern Ireland);

    (b) regulation 2(b) increases subsequent annual fees (retention fees) from £150 to £156 (where the premises are in Great Britain) and from £130 to £135 (where the premises are in Northern Ireland);

These Regulations also revoke the Medicines (Pharmacies) (Applications for Registration and Fees) Amendment Regulations 2005, which increased the fees in the principal Regulations, the effect of which is spent.
