Meaning of equivalent

243 Meaning of equivalent

(1) For this part, a new authorisation is
"equivalent" to a former authorisation if the new authorisation authorises substantially the same activity with a substance as the former authorisation authorised, even if—
(a) the activity is described differently; or
(b) the conditions of the new authorisation and the former authorisation are not identical; or
(c) the new authorisation authorises a regulated activity that includes, and is more than, the activity authorised under the former authorisation.
1 Under the HDPR, section 18 , registered nurses employed at prisons were granted an endorsement authorising supply of restricted drugs in particular doses at prisons. If a new authorisation states that registered nurses may give treatment doses of S4 medicines to the same dosage amount, the new authorisation is equivalent to the former authorisation.
2 Under the HDPR, section 171 , pharmacists were authorised to administer vaccines under the pharmacist vaccination program DTP. If a new authorisation states that pharmacists may administer vaccinations under an extended practice authority, the new authorisation is equivalent to the former authorisation.
(2) Without limiting subsection (1) , a regulation may prescribe a new authorisation to be equivalent to a former authorisation.
