State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy Extends Licensure Deadline for Previously Exempted Prescriber Locations that Store Controlled Substances
On April 4, 2017, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy adopted the following resolution: Resolution: Extension for Licensure of Entities Possessing Controlled Substances (Adopted 4.3.2017)
The Board hereby grants an extension to all previously exempted prescribers that possess controlled substances in their offices from the requirement to obtain a terminal distributor of dangerous drugs license in accordance with section 4729.541 of the Revised Code. This extension is hereby valid until June 1, 2017.
This resolution extends the TDDD licensing requirement for these exempted prescribers to June 1, 2017. Wholesalers will still be permitted to sell to these locations during this extension period.
After June 1, 2017, a wholesaler shipping controlled substances to any prescriber office in Ohio must verify the prescriber is appropriately licensed as a Category III Terminal Distributor of Dangerous Drugs by the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy.
