Ohio Requires Pharmacy Technicians to be Registered by 2018

September 8, 2017

Ohio’s Governor John Kasich is taking action to mitigate illegal opioid distribution. The Ohio Board of Pharmacy will require that pharmacy technicians and trainees be registered by April 6, 2018.

According to the Board, anticipated registration documents may include: Approved Examinations for Qualified Pharmacy Technicians; Background Check including Criminal Records; Employer-Based Qualified Pharmacy Technician Exam Guidance; and Employer’s Submission Form for QTP Examinations.

The new law governing employment as a pharmacy technician helps track and mitigate opioid thefts committed by pharmacy techs.

Ohio is among some six other states that don’t currently have registration requirements in place, but several have Senate bills pending the passing of law.

Updates can be found on the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy’s website. For more information on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board, visit their website.

Verisys offers background checking services including criminal records and the only National Abuse Registry to state boards; as well as screening, verification and monitoring of pharmacy staff to pharmacies and drug store chains.
