Welcome to the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy
Kyle W. Parker, M.B.A., R.Ph., Executive Director
What is the Board of Pharmacy?
The Ohio State Board of Pharmacy is the single State agency in Ohio responsible for administering and enforcing laws governing the legal distribution of drugs. The Board consists of nine members who are appointed by the Governor for terms of four years. Eight of the members are licensed pharmacists who represent to the extent practicable each phase of pharmacy practice. One member represents the public.
Since the State Board of Pharmacy is responsible for administering and enforcing the drug laws of Ohio, the Board licenses:
- Pharmacists, (O.R.C. Chapter 4729.)
- Pharmacy Interns, (O.R.C. Chapter 4729.)
- Terminal and Wholesale Distributors of Dangerous Drugs (both in-state and out-of-state), (O.R.C. Chapter 4729.)
- Manufacturers and Wholesalers of Controlled Substances (O.R.C. Chapter 3719.).
