In compliance with the second enactment clause of Chapter 117 of the 2015 Acts of the Assembly, the Board of Pharmacy (BOP) is promulgating regulations to implement the requirement of law that practitioners of the healing arts must dispense controlled substances in permitted facilities. Regulations set fees for approval of applications, renewal of permits, and reinstatement of lapsed permits. Requirements for inspections, physical standards for the facility, and notification to the Board now fall to the facility permit rather than the individual licensee. The only change in physical requirements is specificity about the availability of hot and cold water, which must be within 20 feet of the selling and storage area and not located within an examination room or restroom. There is a public hearing to discuss this matter on Dec. 12 – all information can be found by clicking here.
