NC BOARD OF PHARMACY TRANSITIONING TO A NEW ON-LINE LICENSING SYSTEM: IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL APPLICANTS AND FOR EXISTING LICENSEES, PERMITTEES, AND REGISTRANTS
AUGUST 1, 2017
The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy will be upgrading its on-line licensing system in the coming weeks. When this transition is complete, Board staff anticipate that the licensing, permitting, and registration processes will be simpler and quicker for both applicants and Board staff.
Accomplishing this transition will require that Board staff take down current licensing, permitting, and registration processes for a short time. Here is the transition plan:
Effective August 18, 2017, all applications – pharmacist license, CPP credentialing, technician registration, pharmacy permitting, DME facility permitting, dispensing physician/PA/NP registration – submitted using current forms and processes (on-line or mail) will not be accepted. Likewise, required updates – e.g., name changes, pharmacist manager changes, pharmacy closure notifications, employment changes, and the like – using current forms and processes will not be accepted. A “mail stop” will go into effect 4:30pm 8/18/2017. Any mail-based application or update received after that date will be returned to sender. Any application or update received prior to August 18, 2017 will be processed by Board staff.
Beginning August 30, 2017, the new on-line system will open to accept all license, permit, and registration applications.
Board staff will resume issuing licenses, registrations, and permits based on applications received in the new on-line system by September 6, 2017.
Also beginning August 30, 2017, existing licensees, permittees, and registrants will need to connect to the new on-line system and create a profile there for purposes of renewal and/or required updates. More information about the profile creation process will be communicated to all existing licensees, permittees, and registrants in the coming weeks.
