Iowa Admin. Code r. 657-31.3 - License application

Unless an applicant for licensure petitions the board for an eligibility determination pursuant to rule 657-31.4 (272C), the applicant's convictions will be reviewed when the board receives a completed license application.

(1) Disclosure. An applicant must disclose all convictions on a license application. Failure to disclose all convictions is grounds for license denial or disciplinary action following license issuance.
(2) Submission of criminal record and personal statement. An applicant with one or more convictions shall submit the complete criminal record for each conviction and a personal statement regarding whether each conviction directly relates to the practice of pharmacy in order for the license application to be considered complete.
(3) Submission of evidence of rehabilitation. An applicant must submit as part of the license application all evidence of rehabilitation that the applicant wishes to be considered by the board.
(4) Board authority. The board may deny a license if the applicant has a disqualifying offense unless the applicant demonstrates by clear and convincing evidence that the applicant is rehabilitated pursuant to Iowa Code section 272C.15.
(5) Licensure requirements. An applicant with one or more disqualifying offenses who has been found rehabilitated must still satisfy all other requirements for licensure.
(6) Nonrefundable fees. Any application fees paid will not be refunded if the license is denied.
