Pharmacists Pharmacy Technicians Consumers


The primary mission of the Board of Pharmacy is to promote, preserve, and protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of New Hampshire by fostering the provision of quality pharmaceutical care. The duties of the Board include the licensure and regulation of pharmacists, pharmacies, limited retail drug distributors, and prescription drug/device manufacturers/wholesalers The Board also registers pharmacy technicians and out-of-state mail-order pharmacies. Other duties in which the Board is responsible include the investigation of pharmacy-related consumer complaints and incidents of prescription/controlled drug diversion. The Board continuously monitors the practice of pharmacy in New Hampshire through the ongoing inspection of pharmacies throughout the state in order to ensure that the citizens of New Hampshire continue to receive the safe, quality pharmaceutical care they have come to expect.

Renewals Pharmacists, In-State Pharmacies, & Non-Resident Pharmacies

  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.
