Kentucky Withdraws Controversial Non-Resident Pharmacist License Regulation
At a special called meeting on January 4, 2023, the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy (“Board”) was set to address public comment on new regulation, 201 KAR 2:460, and proposed amendments to 201 KAR 2:030. The amendments to 201 KAR 2:030 would have created a new non-resident pharmacist license requirement for pharmacists located in other states. A more in-depth discussion of those requirements can be found here.
The proposed regulation under 201 KAR 2:460 would have created stricter requirements for an out-of-state pharmacy to obtain a non-resident pharmacy permit. Prior to discussion, the Board withdrew both proposals, stating that the withdrawal was due to the voluminous amount of comments received from the public and stakeholders.
