Regulatory review
Action 1133
General Information
Action Summary The agency is recommending that the regulation be amended in order to address the numerous questions and recommendations that arose from the periodic review conducted by board members and advisors from all aspects of pharmacy practice. In some cases, there is a need for clarification of a rule; in others there is a need to amend the regulation to allow the practice of pharmacy to be more responsive to patient needs and changing times. The Board intends to amend regulations that restrict practice or inhibit modernization and utilization of newer technology, provided the change is within the parameters of law and federal rules and provided it is good policy that protects the health, safety and welfare of the public.
