North Carolina Board of Pharmacy
Rulemakings In Progress
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMENT PERIOD -- JANUARY 8, 2024 -- ON THE FOLLOWING PROPOSED ACTIONS:
Reason for Proposed Action:
S.L. 2023-129 gave optometrists the authority to dispense certain drugs to their patients, and required any dispensing optometrists to register with the Board of Pharmacy. In order to satisfy NCGS 93B-15, the Board has proposed adding dispensing optometrists to the list of registrants who are entitled to an extension of time to renew their registrations in the event of military deployment.
A public hearing will be held on January 8, 2024 at 10:00am at the NC Board of Pharmacy, 6015 Farrington Road, Suite 201, Chapel Hill, NC 27517.
Any person may object to the proposed rule changes by attending the public hearing on January 8, 2024 and/or by submitting a written objection by February 13, 2024 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email. If you have any further questions concerning the submission of objections to the Commission, please call a Commission staff attorney at 984-236-1850.
