Board of Pharmacy

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.
