Senate Bill No. 294
CHAPTER 565

An act to amend the heading of Article 7.5 (commencing with Section 4127) of Chapter 9 of Division 2 of, and to amend, repeal, and add Sections 4127, 4127.1, 4127.2, and 4400 of, the Business and Professions Code, relating to pharmacy.

[ Approved by Governor  October 04, 2013. Filed with Secretary of State  October 04, 2013. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 294, Emmerson. Sterile drug products.
(1) The Pharmacy Law provides for the licensure and regulation of pharmacists and pharmacy corporations in this state by the California State Board of Pharmacy. Existing law requires the board to adopt regulations establishing standards for compounding injectable sterile drug products in a pharmacy. Existing law requires pharmacies to obtain a license from the board, subject to annual renewal, in order to compound injectable sterile drug products. A similar licensing requirement applies to nonresident pharmacies compounding injectable sterile drug products for shipment into California. A violation of the Pharmacy Law is a crime.
This bill, commencing July 1, 2014, would expand these provisions to prohibit a pharmacy from compounding or dispensing, and a nonresident pharmacy from compounding for shipment into this state, sterile drug products for injection, administration into the eye, or inhalation, unless the pharmacy has obtained a sterile compounding pharmacy license from the board. The bill, commencing July 1, 2014, would specify requirements for the board for the issuance or renewal of a license, and requirements for the pharmacy as a licensee. The bill would require the board to adopt regulations to implement these provisions, and, on and after July 1, 2014, to review formal revisions to specified national standards relating to the compounding of sterile preparations to determine whether amendments to those regulations are necessary, as specified. By adding additional requirements to the Pharmacy Law concerning sterile drug products, the violation of which is a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(2) Existing law specifies the fee for issuance or renewal of a nongovernmental license to compound sterile drug products.
This bill, commencing July 1, 2014, would establish the fee for the issuance or renewal of a nonresident sterile compounding pharmacy license in the amount of $780 and would require the applicant to deposit a reasonable amount, as determined by the board, necessary to cover the board’s estimated cost of performing an inspection of the nonresident pharmacy location, as specified.
(3) The bill would also require the board to report to the Legislature, on or before January 1, 2018, regarding the regulation of nonresident pharmacies, including, among other things, a detailed description of board activities related to the inspection and licensure of nonresident pharmacies.
(4) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
