As part of its required 5-year rule review process, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy (SOBP) proposes the following rules be filed as “no change” rules:
  • 4729:10-1-01 Definitions – prescription drug collection
  • 4729:10-1-03 Law enforcement agencies
  • 4729:10-1-04 Procedure for destruction of collected drugs.
The SOBP also proposes the following rule be filed as “amended:”
  • 4729:10-1-02 Authorized collectors. This rule is being amended to ensure that mail back packages comply with regulations set by the Drug Enforcement Agency, which require all mail back packages to be nondescript and not include any markings or other information that might indicate that the package contains controlled substances.
