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.

Notice of Adopted Changes to Occupational Licensing Fees for Professions Regulated by the Board of Pharmacy

On March 7, 2022, the Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development, Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing adopted regulation changes in Title 12, Chapter 02 of the Alaska Administrative Code. The regulation amends 12 AAC 02.310 to include outsourcing facilities and third-party logistics providers as entities subject to occupational fees and renewal fees, as set by the Department. Additionally, these amendments reduce various occupational licensing and fee amounts required under 12 AAC 02.310.

The regulation changes were reviewed and approved by the Department of Law, signed and filed by the Lieutenant Governor on April 14, 2022, and will go into effect on May 14, 2022. Please click here to see the filed version of the regulations.

The new regulation changes will be printed in Register 242, July 2022 of the Alaska Administrative Code.

WARNING:
Callers Posing as Law Enforcement

The State of Alaska DCCED Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing is warning the public and professional licensees about criminals posing as Professional Board investigators or other law enforcement personnel as part of a scheme to defraud professional licensees. The licensees targeted in this scheme are those who hold a healthcare license and a DEA registration.

The criminals will call the victims (who in most cases are professional licensees in the State of Alaska), and advise them that their professional license is suspended because they are suspected of drug trafficking on the Texas-Mexico Border or some other location. They will further inform the licensee’s that they are the main suspect of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) drug trafficking investigation. The licensee’s professional license number and DEA registration number will be verified by the criminal asking the victim a series of questions. Impersonators will generally threaten the victim with arrest and to serve time in jail if they do not cooperate with the “investigation” and agree to pay a fine or bond.

The State of Alaska DCCED/CBPL Investigations unit will never call a member of the public or a licensee demanding money. Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be a State of Alaska Professional Licensing Board Investigator or other law enforcement official seeking money should refuse the demand and report the contact to the FBI, DEA, their local law enforcement agency or contact the Division Investigations Unit at 907-269-8124 or email investigations@alaska.gov.
