Alaska Board of Pharmacy

The Board of Pharmacy “the board” is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of five pharmacists and two public members. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing pharmacy practice in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against licensees who violate laws under AS 08, 12 AAC 52, and other applicable laws. The board is required to meet at least three (3) times a year, all of which may be held via teleconference or videoconference. Though not required, a public comment period may be on the agenda if appropriately published. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the board’s executive administrator and will be posted to this website once prepared. Draft minutes are typically available within 10 days subsequent to a meeting while final minutes are typically posted within 3-4 months.

Public Notice:

Written comments deadline: 4:30 p.m. on July 8, 2024

As health care providers, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have always felt the need to ensure the safety of their patients. In recent years, however, stress levels for pharmacy personnel have increased exponentially as they have taken on new responsibilities and seen increased workloads, while at the same time providing patients with top-level care. To help support pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, NABP has compiled tools and information that can be used to find help.

Hard Copy License Certificates Discontinued

The division has expanded our online services to allow licensees to download their own license certificates on demand. As a result, the division no longer mails hardcopy license certificates. The certificates will be located under the “initial application” and “renewal” events in the MY LICENSE account.

If you need guidance on how to set up or access your MY LICENSE account, you can access the MY LICENSE instructions here.
