Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 480-49-.03 - Bad Checks and Reversals

(1) It is the policy of the Board of Pharmacy to pursue its legal remedies under O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20 when a bad check is issued in payment of examination, license or renewal fees, application fees, or similar fees, and to take such other action as outlined herein. Any person issuing a bad check will be subject to the service charge as provided in O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20(a)(2).
(2) Bad Checks.
(a) If an applicant for licensure by examination or reciprocity issues a bad check to cover required licensure or examination fees, such applicant shall not be issued a license until the applicant has paid the appropriate fees and the service charge. If a license is issued prior to determining that the applicant issued a bad check, such license will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the licensure or examination fees and service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the licensure fees and the service charge by cashier's check or money order.
(b) If an applicant for registration or permit issues a bad check to cover required application fees, such applicant shall not be issued a registration or permit until the applicant has paid the appropriate fees and the service charge. If a registration or permit is issued prior to determining that the applicant issued a bad check, such registration or permit will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the appropriate fees and service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the application fees and the service charge by cashier's check or money order.
(c) If a licensee, permit-holder, or registrant attempts to renew a license, permit, or registration by the issuance of a bad check, the license, permit, or registration will not be renewed until the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant pays all fees due including any applicable late renewal fees plus the service charge. If the license, permit, or registration is renewed and reissued to the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant prior to determination that the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant issued a bad check, the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant will be notified by certified or registered mail that the renewed license, permit, or registration will be deemed not current unless the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant remits all fees due for renewal plus the service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The licensee, permit-holder, or registrant must pay the fees and service charge by cashier's check or money order.
(3) Reversals or chargebacks.
(a) If a license by examination or reciprocity is issued and the licensee initiates a chargeback, such license will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the licensure or examination fees and service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the licensure fees and the service charge by cashier's check or money order.
(b) If a registration or permit is issued and the applicant initiates a chargeback, such registration or permit will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the licensure or examination fees and service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the application fees and the service charge by cashier's check or money order.
(c) If the license, permit, or registration is renewed and reissued to the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant and the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant initiates a chargeback, the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant will be notified by certified or registered mail that the renewed license, permit, or registration will be deemed not current unless the licensee, permit-holder, or registrant remits all fees due for renewal plus the service charge within ten (10) days of the Board mailing the notice by certified or registered mail. The licensee, permit-holder, or registrant must pay the fees and service charge by cashier's check or money order.
