On April 3, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy (SOBP) adopted the following resolution:
Resolution: Extension for Licensure of Entities Possessing Controlled Substances (Adopted April 3, 2017).
The SOBP hereby grants an extension to all previously exempted prescribers that possess controlled substances in their offices from the requirement to obtain a terminal distributor of dangerous drugs (TDDD) license in accordance with section 4729.541 of the Ohio Revised Code. This extension is hereby valid until Thursday, June 1, 2017.
This resolution extends the TDDD licensing requirement for these exempted prescribers to Thursday, June 1. Wholesalers will still be permitted to sell to these locations during this extension period.
After Thursday, June 1, a wholesaler shipping controlled substances to any prescriber office in Ohio must verify the prescriber is appropriately licensed as a category III TDDD by the SOBP.
