Notice of Public Comment Period
Board of Pharmacy
Regulations Governing Pharmaceutical Processors
In accordance with Chapters 205, 227, and 228 of the 2021 Acts of the Assembly, the Board of Pharmacy is providing an opportunity to comment on a draft of proposed regulations for pharmaceutical processors that will be considered for adoption as an exempt action.
The proposed regulations as drafted:
- Amend regulations as required by the 2021 legislation (those are highlighted in the attached document);
- Replace the references to “cannabis oil” with “cannabis products;” and
- Incorporate other amendments that are currently in effect as emergency regulations (those changes are shown with underlining or overstriking but are not highlighted).
The 2021 legislation requires posting of a notice 60 days in advance of submittals for public comment and also requires amended regulations to be effective by September 1, 2021. Therefore, the Board of Pharmacy is scheduled to meet on July 6, 2021 with the intent of submitting regulations to the Register of Regulations by July 14, 2021 for publication on August 2, 2021 with an effective date of September 1, 2021.
Although the Board will receive public comment from May 6, 2021 to July 5, 2021, commenters are strongly encouraged to submit comments by June 18, 2021 in order to have them included in the Board’s agenda package and adequately considered for the July 6th meeting.
