Georgia: Out-of-State Pharmacies Required to Register
Share |

 

 

 

 

Until recently, only Georgia, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania did not require out-of-state pharmacies to register with their Boards of Pharmacy. Georgia passed legislation to establish non-resident permitting in April 2013 and final rules were adopted by the Georgia Board at its meeting on October 7, 2014. Forms and instructions for registering are now available at the Board's website.

Beginning on January 1, 2015, all pharmacies dispensing or delivering prescriptions into the state of Georgia must have a non-resident permit. The application requirements are included in the attached rules published by the Board. Compounding pharmacies that deliver office-use medications to Georgia practitioners must also provide a current inspection report from their home state Board of Pharmacy that includes verification that the pharmacy is in compliance with USP <795> for non-sterile compounding and USP <797> for sterile compounding.

If dispensing sterile or nonsterile compounding for practitioners to use in patient care in the
practitioner’s office, a copy of the most recent inspection report that is no older than two (2)
years before the date of application was submitted and which is from an inspection conducted by
the regulatory or licensing agencies of the jurisdiction in which the applicant is located that
indicates compliance with the Board’s rules and regulations and compliance with USP-NF
standards for pharmacies performing sterile and nonsterile compounding, or another inspection
approved by or conducted by the Board.

 

Applications can be accessed at the Board's website here.
