21 N.C. Admin. Code 46 .1401 - REGISTRATION AND PERMITS

(a) Registration Required. All places providing services which embrace the practice of pharmacy shall register with the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy as provided in G.S. 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.
(c) 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 facility;
(2) The 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.
