CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 752


Introduced by Senator Stone

February 17, 2017


An act to amend Section 25207.3 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to hazardous waste. An act to amend Sections 4022.5, 4040.5, 4059.5, 4100, 4160, 4331, and 4400 of, and to add Sections 4022.6 and 4053.2 to, the Business and Professions Code, relating to healing arts.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 752, as amended, Stone. Hazardous waste: agricultural waste. Pharmacy: designated representative-reverse distributors.
The Pharmacy Law provides for the licensure and regulation of pharmacists and other persons involved in the handling, storage, sale, or disposal of drugs and devices by the California State Board of Pharmacy in the Department of Consumer Affairs. That law requires a person acting as a reverse distributor to be licensed by the board as a wholesaler and supervised or managed by a designated representative or pharmacist, as specified. A violation of that law is a crime, unless otherwise provided.
This bill would authorize a wholesaler that only acts as a reverse distributor to operate under the supervision of a designated representative-reverse distributor, as an alternative to operating under the supervision of a designated representative or pharmacist, and would provide for the separate licensure of individuals as designated representative-reverse distributors upon application, payment of an application fee, and completion of certain requirements. The bill would make related and conforming changes, including requiring designated representative-reverse distributors and designated representative-3PLs to notify the executive officer of the board of a change of name or address. The bill would specify that persons who act as agents for pharmacies or other entities by receiving, inventorying, warehousing, and managing the disposition of outdated or nonsaleable dangerous devices are reverse distributors. By modifying the scope of a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
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.

Existing law authorizes a county to develop and establish a program for the collection of banned, unregistered, or outdated agricultural waste from an eligible participant. Existing law requires a county participating in the program to conduct a survey to identify all eligible participants in the county to assess the amount, kind, and condition of the banned, unregistered, or outdated agricultural waste that will be collected by the program.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the survey provision.
