Protecting the Public: State Pharmacy Boards

Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and other pharmacy professionals must be licensed in the states in which they practice.  In most states, regulatory oversight is provided by a State Pharmacy Board or the equivalent.  These regulatory authorities are responsible for protecting the health and safety of the public by determining licensure qualifications for new pharmacy professionals, establishing standards for practitioners to follow in order to maintain their license to practice, disciplining licensees who do not adhere to those requirements, and promoting high quality pharmaceutical care and pharmacy services. In addition to pharmacists and other pharmacy professionals, in a number of states the Pharmacy Board, or its equivalent, provides regulatory oversight of pharmacies and other institutions engaged in the distribution of pharmaceutical products and services.  To find the State Pharmacy Board, or the equivalent, that oversee pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and other pharmacy professionals in each state. visit our resource guide:
