NC BOARD OF PHARMACY MANDATORY PERIODIC RULE REVIEW.
In accordance with N.C. Gen. Stat. § 150B-21.3A and 26 NCAC 05 .0206, the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy has adopted initial determinations of its rules for purposes of completing the mandatory periodic rule review.  The report of its initial determinations is at the link below.

The Board will be accepting public comment on the initial rule designations until the close of business on Monday, May 1, 2017.  If you wish to submit public comment about any of the proposed rule classifications, you may do so by either mailing a public comment to the attention of the Board’s Executive Director, Jay Campbell, by US Postal Service or other delivery service to 6015 Farrington Road, Suite 201, Chapel Hill, NC 27517, or by e-mail to rulereview@ncbop.org.

”Public comment” is defined by N.C. Gen. Stat. § 150B-21.3A(a)(5) as a written objection to all or part of a rule.  Additionally, pursuant to N.C. Gen. Stat. § 150B-21.3A(c)(2), in order for the North Carolina Rules Review Commission to determine whether the public comment has merit, the public comment must address the specific substance of the rule and address any of the standards of Commission review, as set forth in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 150B‑21.9(a).

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2016

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMENT PERIOD (FEBRUARY 21, 2017) ON PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO RULES 21 NCAC 46 .2102, .2104, .2105, .2107, and .2108  – ELIGIBILITY TO VOTE, COMMITTEE ON NOMINATIONS,  NOMINATION BY PETITION, BALLOTS:  CASTING AND COUNTING, DETERMINATION OF ELECTION RESULTS.  The Board has proposed the amendment of several of its Board member election rules in order to shift the voting period to coincide with the pharmacist licensing renewal period.  The Board proposed to provide an opportunity for pharmacists to vote by electronic ballot at the same time that they perform their on-line license renewal.  The Board believes that aligning voting with license renewal is likely to increase pharmacist participation in voting.  The Board further proposed to eliminate the option for voting by paper ballots, as no pharmacist has voted by paper ballot since 2011, and elimination of this option will conserve Board resources by allowing it to cease production of paper ballots.  The Board further proposes to amend the rules to codify run-off procedures, as run-offs have often become necessary.

A public hearing will be held on February 21, 2017 at 9:00am at the NC Board of Pharmacy office, 6015 Farrington Road, Suite 201, Chapel Hill, NC  27517.

Any person may object to the proposed amendment by attending the public hearing on February 21, 2017 and/or by submitting a written objection by 9:00am on February 21, 2017 to Jay Campbell, Executive Director, North Carolina Board of Pharmacy, 6015 Farrington Road, Suite 201, Chapel Hill, NC 27517, fax (919) 246-1056, e-mail jcampbell@ncbop.org. The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy is interested in all comments pertaining to the proposed rule. All persons interested and potentially affected by the proposal are strongly encouraged to read this entire notice and make comments on the proposed rule.

If an objection is not resolved prior to the adoption of the rule, a person may also submit written objections to the Rules Review Commission. If the Rules Review Commission receives written and signed objections in accordance with G.S. 150B-21.3(b2) from 10 or more persons clearly requesting review by the legislature and the Rules Review Commission approves the rule, the rule will become effective as provided in G.S. 150B-21.3(b1). The Commission will receive written objections until 5:00 p.m. on the day following the day the Commission approves the rule. The Commission will receive those objections by mail, delivery service, hand delivery, or facsimile transmission. If you have any further questions concerning the submission of objections to the Commission, please call a Commission staff attorney at 919-431-3000.
