Frequently Asked Questions on Technician Registration Renewal

 

Q:  Are volunteer pharmacy technicians required to renew their registrations 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 and are already registered with the Board must complete the renewal application by logging in here (on or after November 1, 2015): https://www.ncbop2.org/Licensee/technician. The renewal fee will be waived just as the registration fee was waived.
