PLEASE NOTE: After the Board obtains evidence of alleged violations, a licensee is sent a preliminary notice letter of the Board’s intent to institute disciplinary action. The licensee then has an opportunity to show compliance with the law in an informal conference with a Board panel. If the licensee cannot show compliance with the law and desires to dispose of any pending allegations, the licensee may consent to the entry of an Agreed Board Order. It should be noted that while there is agreement on the part of the licensee to the entry of an Agreed Board Order, there is neither admission nor denial of guilt with respect to any matters that have come to the attention of the Board. If a licensee, or the Board, does not agree to terms of the Agreed Board Order, or if the licensee does not wish an informal conference, a disciplinary hearing is scheduled before an Administrative Law Judge from the Office of Administrative Hearings. The Administrative Law Judge, after hearing all evidence in the matter, will make a recommendation to the Board for action to be taken. The Board then makes a decision in the case, which is documented by the entry of a Board Order. On the finding of the existence of grounds for discipline of a licensee, the Board may suspend, revoke, restrict, fine, refuse to issue or renew, probate, reprimand, cancel, or retire a license. Although every effort is made to ensure that the above information is correct, you should submit an open records request through Board’s office here to confirm the accuracy of the listing before making any decision based upon this information. 


REMINDER: Compounding Advisory Group
to discuss FDA MOU and other topics in June 2021 -
Stakeholder input requested

The Board discussed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the February 2021 Board meeting and voted to add the MOU to the Compounding Advisory Group agenda at their upcoming meeting in June 2021.

The Compounding Advisory Group meeting will be held June 24, 2021 beginning at 9:30am. This meeting will elicit input from stakeholders regarding the MOU, and together with stakeholder input provide a recommendation to the Board for consideration at the August 2021 Board meeting. Along with the MOU, the Compounding Advisory Group will also discuss and elicit stakeholder comments regarding virtual training for individuals performing sterile compounding, discuss proposed changes of non-sterile compounding rules, discuss proposed changes for new classes of pharmacy, and develop recommendations for the Board based on these discussions. Stakeholders will be able to sign up for comment via the agenda once it is available.
