  • rules


All drug outlets shall annually register with the State Board of Pharmacy.


(a) Each drug outlet shall apply for a certificate of registration in one or more of the following classifications:


Retail drug outlet.


Institutional drug outlet.


Manufacturing drug outlet.


Wholesale drug outlet.


Nonprescription drug outlet.


No individual who is employed by a corporation which is registered under any classification listed in paragraph (a) of this subsection need register under the provisions of this section.


The board shall establish by rule under the powers granted to it under ORS 689.155 (Authority of board over medications, drugs, devices and other materials) and 689.205 (Rules) the criteria which each drug outlet must meet to qualify for registration in each classification designated in subsection (2)(a) of this section. The board may issue various types of certificates of registration with varying restrictions to the designated outlets where the board deems it necessary by reason of the type of drug outlet requesting a certificate.


It shall be lawful for a drug outlet registered under this section to sell and distribute nonprescription drugs. Drug outlets engaging in the sale and distribution of such items shall not be deemed to be improperly engaged in the practice of pharmacy. [1979 c.777 §30; 1993 c.571 §8]
