Registration Required. All places providing services which embrace the practice
of pharmacy shall register with the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy as
90-85.21 and acquire a permit to do so.
Application for such registration and permit shall be on forms provided by the
Board. If the Board is satisfied that proper facilities and adequately trained
and properly licensed personnel have been obtained which will assure compliance
with all laws regulating the compounding and distribution of drugs, the
practice of pharmacy and the rules of the Board, a permit shall be issued by
the Board attesting such registration.
(b) Exemptions. Nothing in these rules shall
be construed to require the registration with the Board of those health care
facilities in which there occurs only the administration of drugs.
Separate Registration Required. The
dispensing of drugs from separate locations owned by a health care facility,
such as satellite pharmacies, outside clinics, health maintenance
organizations, or physician's offices owned by the health care facility shall
require separate registration if any one of the following criteria exists:
(1) The drugs dispensed at the location are
ordinarily and customarily obtained from a source outside of the health care
pharmacist-manager is controlled and supervised from a source other than the
health care facility pharmacy; or
(3) The routine activity at the location is
dispensing drugs to outpatients.
(d) Any pharmacy that provides compounding or
dispensing services to one or more health care facilities for individual
patient administration bearing any labeled name other than that under which it
is registered shall require a separate registration.
(e) Health care facilities which do not have
a pharmacy permit shall secure their pharmaceutical services through a
pharmacist holding a current license from the Board.
