Colorado Board of Pharmacy Stakeholder Meeting Scheduled for June 11, 2018 Regarding possible amendments to board rules

Stakeholder Meeting - June 11

The Colorado State Board of Pharmacy is considering amending Board Rules 3.05.00, 6.00.00, 14.00.40, 14.00.80, 17.00.00 and 25.00.14 to improve the administration and enforcement of the Pharmacists, Pharmacy Businesses and Pharmaceuticals Act.
Colorado law permits agencies to informally solicit views from interested stakeholders concerning proposed draft rules before commencing the formal rulemaking process. We invite you to share your thoughts and recommendations as we improve a preliminary draft of proposed rules to regulate the practice of pharmacy in Colorado.
