21 NCAC 46 .1401             REGISTRATION AND PERMITS

(a)  Registration Required.  All places providing services

which embrace the practice of pharmacy shall register with the North Carolina

Board of Pharmacy as provided in G.S. 90‑85.21 and acquire a permit to do

so.  Application for such registration and permit shall be on forms provided by

the Board.  If the Board is satisfied that proper facilities and adequately

trained and properly licensed personnel have been obtained which will assure

compliance with all laws regulating the compounding and distribution of drugs,

the practice of pharmacy and the rules of the Board, a permit shall be issued

by the Board attesting such registration.

(b)  Exemptions.  Nothing in these rules shall be construed

to require the registration with the Board of those health care facilities in

which there occurs only the administration of drugs.

(c)  Separate Registration Required.  The dispensing of

drugs from separate locations owned by a health care facility, such as

satellite pharmacies, outside clinics, health maintenance organizations, or

physician's offices owned by the health care facility shall require separate

registration if any one of the following criteria exists:

(1)           The drugs dispensed at the location are

ordinarily and customarily obtained from a source outside of the health care


(2)           The pharmacist-manager is controlled and

supervised from a source other than the health care facility  pharmacy; or

(3)           The routine activity at the location is

dispensing drugs to outpatients.

(d)  Any pharmacy that provides compounding or dispensing

services to one or more health care facilities for individual patient

administration bearing any labeled name other than that under which it is

registered shall require a separate registration.

(e)  Health care facilities which do not have a pharmacy

permit shall secure their pharmaceutical services through a pharmacist holding

a current license from the Board.
