The mission of the Chamber is the development of Serbia’s pharmaceutical sector and the protection of patients’ rights and interests through the establishment of professional standards and ethical principles.

The Pharmaceutical Chamber envisages the pharmacist of the 21st century, one who is licenced and plays an educational, advisory and informative roll in relation to patients/the general population and other healthcare professionals. In this manner, the overall objective of the Cham-ber is achieved - the promotion of health, the prevention and healing of illness with the safe and effective use of medication.

The Chamber’s motto is: Knowledge is the Path to Health and all views and objectives are centred around this maxim to which its members are committed.


The Constitutive Session of the Pharmaceutical Chamber of Serbia was held 24 February 1997. At the Session, the Chamber’s first bodies were chosen: the Assembly, the Panel of Pharmacists who work in both the public and private sectors, committees, the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board. With this, the Pharmaceutical Chamber of Serbia officially opened its doors. This was the only chamber of healthcare professionals established prior to the passing of the Law on Healthcare Chamber Professionals, in November 2005.

All of the activities of the Pharmaceutical Chamber of Serbia, from its establishment until present day are based on the knowledge that all of the jobs conducted in any pharmacy are of a public nature and their objective is to build and nurture relationships with beneficiaries. The strategy relating to Corporate Social Responsibility within the pharmaceutical sector requires the strengthening of its capacities and the provision of professional support to employees, raising their level of knowledge of legal regulations, as well as their awareness of ethics and ethical principles.

Since its establishment until today, the Chamber has changed the location of its seat several times. The first Chamber was located at Zmaj Jovina Street in Belgrade (today Kneginje Ljubice street), which was a space leased to the Chamber by federal bodies of the Sovereign Republic of Yugoslavia. The Chamber was located here for just two years and this building is now home to the Intellectual Property Office.

After 1999, the Chamber moved to Dečanska 8A, and this space is leased first from federal, then from republic bodies, more precisely from the Administration of Joint Services. The Chamber remained in this space until moving in May of 2014, when via the Decision of the Assembly of the Pharmaceutical Chamber of Serbia a space was purchased for the seat of the Central Office of the Chamber and its Divisions. From then on, the Chamber has been located at Mutapova 25 in Vračar, in the direct vicinity of Sveti Sava Temple.
