Regulations Governing Pharmaceutical Processors


In accordance with Chapters 392 and 933 of the 2022 Acts of the Assembly, the Board of Pharmacy is providing an opportunity to comment on draft proposed regulations for pharmaceutical processors that will be considered for adoption as an exempt action.


The proposed regulations have been drafted to conform to the 2022 legislation, which includes but is not limited to the elimination of mandatory patient registration, changes in allowable manufacturing and extraction of cannabis products, wholesale transactions of bulk cannabis, and marketing of cannabis products. The proposed regulations can be found on the Board of Pharmacy’s website for review:


Virginia Code § 54.1-3442.6 requires that the Board provide a 60 day comment period prior to adopting regulations related to pharmaceutical processors. The 2022 legislation requires the Board to amend regulations by September 15, 2022. Therefore, the Board of Pharmacy will adopt regulations at its scheduled meeting on September 6, 2022.


The Board will receive public comment on these proposed regulations from July 8, 2022 to September 6, 2022. However, commenters are strongly encouraged to submit comments by August 12, 2022 in order to have them included in the Board’s agenda package and adequately considered for the September 6th meeting.
