Regulations for Practitioners of the Healing Arts to Sell Controlled Substances [18 VAC 110 ‑ 30]
Action:
Permits for facilities
 
General Information
Action Summary In compliance with the second enactment clause of Chapter 117 of the 2015 Acts of the Assembly, the Board of Pharmacy 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.
