North Carolina Board of Pharmacy
2022-2023 Calendar of Events


INFORMATION CONCERNING BOARD OF PHARMACY PERMIT MEETINGS.  Consistent with recommendations from public health authorities and Governor Cooper’s declared state of emergency responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Pharmacy's biweekly permit meetings are cancelled until further notice.
The Governor's emergency declaration, however, also triggered operation of the Board's Emergency Services Waiver order.  That order authorizes the Board's executive director to make case-by-case waivers of Pharmacy Practice Act requirements to preserve the public safety, health, and welfare during a state of emergency. Accordingly, the Board's Executive Director has waived 21 NCAC 46.1606, which requires that the pharmacist-manager of an applicant pharmacy or the person in charge of a facility applying for a device and medical equipment permit to appear personally at the Board office prior to issuing a permit.

This waiver is limited to pharmacy or DME permit applicants that are notified by Board licensing staff of their eligibility to attend a permit meeting.  Permit applicants eligible to attend have already been notified.  Every two weeks, newly eligible permit applicants will be notified by e-mail.  If you have a question concerning the status of your permit application, please call or email Board licensing staff.  Do not travel to the Board office for permit meetings or to inquire about application status.
