Community Pharmacy

Amendments

THERE IS NO CHARGE TO AMEND A COMMUNITY PHARMACY LICENSE.

Change of ownership (sale, whether of stock, title, or assets, lease, discontinuance of operations) or change of premises terminates the license. The community pharmacy license is NOT amendable for these changes.  The owner(s) must apply for a new pharmacy license.

Once the Department has received the items required to complete the amendment process, the facility will receive an amended pharmacy license. Items required:
  1. Application to Amend a License to Operate a Pharmacy -- keep a copy of the       completed amendment for the facility's records and send the ORIGINAL to the Department;
  2. PHARMACY PERMIT which shows the current expiration date and name of the outgoing PIC  
    NOTE: the facility should keep a COPY of the license prior to sending the ORIGINAL to the Department;
  3. Affidavit for Tech Manual due to PIC change. Keep a copy of the completed      amendment for the facility’s records and send the ORIGINAL to the Department; and
  4. CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE INVENTORY: Keep the original inventory and send a COPY of the completed inventory to the Department. This special inventory is to be done at the time of PIC  change. This special inventory does not change your normal ANNUAL inventory date (see 8-006.05C2-C5).
Reasons for an amendment include:
  • CHANGE OF PHARMACIST IN CHARGE
    Definition of pharmacist-in-charge (PIC) as found in Title 175 Chapter 8 Regulations Governing Licensure of Pharmacies: a pharmacist who is designated on a pharmacy license or designated by a hospital as being responsible for the practice of pharmacy in the pharmacy for which a pharmacy license is issued and who works within the physical confines of the pharmacy for a majority of the hours per week that the pharmacy is open for business averaged over a 12-month period or 30 hours per week, whichever is less.  A pharmacy needs to have a PIC designated AT ALL TIMES.   There is no grace period. The facility, however, will be allowed 30 days from the actual date of change in PIC to remit the following 4 items to the Department at the address listed on the amendment application in order to complete the PIC amendment process.

  • CONTINUATION OF PHARMACY LICENSE BY HEIRS/ESTATE OF DECEASED
     As set forth in Title 175 Chapter 8 Regulations Governing Licensure of Pharmacies (8-004.08), the heirs or executor of the estate must notify the Department within 30 days after the death of the licensee designated on the Nebraska pharmacy license in order to amend the licensee information.

  • PHARMACY NAME CHANGE
    As set forth in Title 175 Chapter 8 Regulations Governing Licensure of Pharmacies (8-004.07), the licensee must notify the Department in writing within 5 working days when there is a change in the name of the pharmacy.
