Emergency Extension Request
Continuous quality improvement programs

On 8/19/2013 the board requested that this emergency stage be extended until 4/1/2014.

Reason for Extension:
The Code of Virginia (Section 54.1-3434.03) requires each phamracy to implement a program for continous quality improvement according to regulations of the Board of Pharmacy. Emergency regulations prescribing such a program will expire on 9/30/13. The Board submitted proposed regulation to replace the emergency regulations on Townhall on 1/2/13; the proposed regulations are still awaiting approval in the Governor's office. Therefore, it is impossible to complete the replacement of the emergency regulations by the 9/30/13 expiration. The lack of regulations for an onging process of analysis of dispensing errors would be problematic for pharmacies seeking to comply with the statute.

This request expired without being granted.
