  Important Notice to All In-State and Non-Resident Pharmacies Licensed by the NH Board of Pharmacy
  The President of the NH Board of Pharmacy issues a notice regarding new data collection regulations Adobe Acrobat symbolwhich became effective September 1, 2016. All pharmacies dispensing or shipping Schedule II-IV controlled substances are required to submit their dispensing records on these prescriptions to the NH Prescription Drug Monitoring Program reporting system by the close of the next business day following the date the prescription is dispensed.
  Required Pharmacist Breaks
  As noted in the Board’s October 2016 Newsletter, pharmacists and pharmacies need to be aware that Ph 704.01 of the Board’s rules now requires that pharmacists working greater than an 8-hour shift take a 30-minute rest break – it is not optional. As there has been some misunderstanding of the terminology used in the Board’s laws and rules, the Board would like to remind everyone that whenever the word “shall” is used in its laws/rules that this means it is a mandated requirement, and licensees found in violation are subject to disciplinary sanctions by the Board.
