Before you think of opening a patent medicine store in Nigeria, the registration process must come to mind; the body you need to register a chemist or patent medicine store with is called the National Association of Proprietary and Patent Medicine Dealers (N.A.P.P.M.D).
N.A.P.P.M.D was approved by the pharmaceutical council of Nigeria to manage to affairs of patent medicine stores
To register with N.A.P.P.M.D, you need to pay a certain amount ranging from 80,000-120,000 depending on your location. This money is used to help you process the registration with PCN and also for other activities within the organization like the end of year party and give away.
There is also a yearly payment of 25,000-50,000 from members to the organization.
In some cases, people might bypass the N.A.P.P.M.D registration when they have gotten their PCN registration; this might cause a problem for them in the future as the organization might come for them to do a proper registration.
