Description

Board of Pharmacy; specific powers and duties. Directs the Board of Pharmacy to limit the implementation of its pedigree system to those drugs that have left the normal distribution channel. "Normal distribution channel" is defined as (i) a chain of custody for a prescription drug from initial sale by a pharmaceutical manufacturer, through acquisition and sale by one wholesale distributor, until final sale to a pharmacy or other person dispensing or administering the controlled substance; or (ii) a chain of custody for a prescription drug from initial sale by a pharmaceutical manufacturer, through acquisition and sale by one wholesale distributor to a chain pharmacy warehouse to its intracompany pharmacies; or (iii) a chain of custody for a prescription drug from initial sale by a pharmaceutical manufacturer to a chain pharmacy warehouse to its intracompany pharmacies. The bill also exempts from the Administrative Process Act the Board's amendments to the list of drugs susceptible to counterfeiting. However, the Board is required to establish a process in regulation for amending the list that provides notice and opportunity for public comment and may make exceptions to the pedigree requirements for emergency medical reasons, as defined in regulation.
