Ex-manufacturer price

Page last updated: 1 July 2021

The spreadsheets set out the approved ex-manufacturer price (AEMP) for the pricing quantity of each PBS listed brand of pharmaceutical item, and if applicable the proportional ex-manufacturer price (PEMP) and claimed price for pack quantities.

Responsible persons will find it useful to refer to the ex-manufacturer prices in this spreadsheet when completing pricing requests in the PB11a form.

The National Health Act 1953 provides for ex-manufacturer pricing for the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme from 1 October 2012. Prices are agreed or determined at the ex-manufacturer level rather than the price to pharmacists level (i.e. the approved ex-manufacturer price (AEMP) replaces the approved price to pharmacists (APP) as the core price in the Act). For further information, please refer to 2012 Changes to PBS Pricing Arrangements page. 

The definitions of the PBS Program codes can be found on the PBS Developers website.

Other PBS listing and pricing data can be found on the Publications page.
