Non-Resident Pharmacy Requirements

Kansas law now requires each registered non-resident pharmacy to provide the Board with proof of a satisfactory inspection of the pharmacy conducted within the previous 18-month period and designate a Kansas-licensed pharmacist-in-charge (PIC).

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the pharmacist in charge need be licensed in Kansas?
Yes, all non-resident pharmacies must designate a Kansas-licensed PIC for the facility. This does not need to be the same pharmacist that is designated as the PIC for the home state registration.

When does the pharmacy need to be in compliance?
Any currently registered non-resident pharmacy must have a Kansas licensed pharmacist designated at the time of submitting the 2018 renewal (May – June 2018). When the pharmacy renews, they must provide a Kansas license number for their current PIC or change the PIC to a Kansas licensed pharmacist using the BA-50 form. They will also need to provide an inspection report completed within the past 18 months. Instructions for renewals will be sent out prior to the renewal portal opening.

Can a pharmacist be PIC at more than one location?
A pharmacist can only be a PIC at one full-time location. Full-time is defined as having 30 hours or more per week.

We have a pharmacist/PIC who is already licensed in Kansas. What do they need to do?
If your PIC was licensed in Kansas more than two years ago and has never served as PIC at a facility located in Kansas, they will need to take and pass our PIC exam. You can request a PIC exam by emailing pharmacy@ks.gov. Please provide the facility number and the PIC’s name and Kansas license number.
