Controlled substances governance and licensing

Under the Controlled Substances Act (1984), the Controlled Substances Licensing Section of the Department for Health and Ageing administers the parts of the Act and regulations relating to the licensing of pest control companies, pest management technicians and aerial spray contractors, and regulates the sale, supply, possession and use of scheduled poisons/drugs. 

As the ‘licensing authority’, Controlled Substances Licensing (CSL) issues drugs and poisons licenses in South Australia. Links to information sheets, application forms and online fee payment are shown below and grouped into:
