Out of State Wholesale Drug Distributors General Information

The Alaska Board of Pharmacy requires registration of a pharmacy located outside of the state ONLY if the pharmacy ships, mails or delivers prescription drugs to consumers in the state (AS 08.80.158).

A license as a wholesale drug distributor is required for a facility engaged in wholesale distribution of drugs or related devices from a site in Alaska.

A facility engaged only in wholesale operations at a site outside of Alaska is not required to register with the Alaska Board of Pharmacy. The facility must be registered in the jurisdiction where the facility is located, and must be registered with the DEA if distributing controlled substances. The facility must comply with all applicable statutes and regulations.

An out of state license is required for a pharmacy located outside of the state that is providing prescription drugs directly to patients in Alaska.

You can find all the pertinent applications, fee information, regulations and statutes at our website. The link is ProfessionalLicense.Alaska.Gov/BoardOfPharmacy

  • 423490 – Professional Equipment Wholesalers
