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.
- Reminder Notice -- Registered / Non-Certified Pharmacy Technicians
The Board would like to remind all registered/non-certified pharmacy technicians in NH that if you are performing data-entry in the pharmacy department that you must attend a Board-approved training “refresher” program prior to the renewal of your non-certified pharmacy technician registration for the April 1, 2017-March 31, 2018 registration period. View the currently Board-approved list of programs .
- Important Notice – Website Update
The Board of Pharmacy has a new website design. All Licensing Boards/Commissions under the NH Office of Professional Licensure & Certification (OPLC) now use the same style for webpages. It is important to be aware that all the links under the left hand column of this page link to OPLC information. Selecting any link on the left hand column will exit you from the Board of Pharmacy site and direct you to OPLC sites. If you are looking for Board of Pharmacy specific content or contact information, you must select from the items on the right hand column of this screen, under the heading of “Board of Pharmacy”. We apologize for the confusion this website change has created.
- NH Med Bank
A charitable pharmacy that collects unused, unexpired, non-controlled medications from licensed healthcare facilities and dispenses them at no cost to New Hampshire residents who cannot afford their medications.
