Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Volunteer Work
Q: Are volunteer pharmacy technicians required to register with the Board?
A: Yes. Amendments to Board Rule .3301, which speaks to pharmacy technician registration, went into effect on July 1, 2015. Among other things, amended Rule .3301 clarifies that pharmacy technicians who provide services solely at a free clinic (as defined at G.S. 90-85.44) are required to register as technicians, but are exempt from the registration fee. Accordingly, technicians practicing solely at free clinics should complete the online registration application found here (log in to the Gateway to access the application). The registration fee will be waived upon verification of the free clinic site.
