An identification card issued by the state board of pharmacy under section 4729.08 of the Revised Code entitles the individual to whom it is issued to practice as a pharmacist or as a pharmacy intern in this state until the next annual renewal date.
Identification cards shall be renewed annually on the fifteenth day of September, according to the standard renewal procedure of Chapter 4745. of the Revised Code.
Each pharmacist and pharmacy intern shall carry the identification card or renewal identification card while engaged in the practice of pharmacy. The license shall be conspicuously exposed at the principal place where the pharmacist or pharmacy intern practices pharmacy.
A pharmacist or pharmacy intern who desires to continue in the practice of pharmacy shall file with the board an application in such form and containing such data as the board may require for renewal of an identification card. In the case of a pharmacist who dispenses or plans to dispense controlled substances in this state, the pharmacist shall certify, as part of the application, that the pharmacist has been granted access to the drug database established and maintained by the board pursuant to section 4729.75 of the Revised Code, unless the board has restricted the pharmacist from obtaining further information from the database or the board no longer maintains the database. If the pharmacist certifies to the board that the applicant has been granted access to the drug database and the board finds through an audit or other means that the pharmacist has not been granted access, the board may take action under section 4729.16 of the Revised Code.
An application filed under this section for renewal of an identification card may not be withdrawn without the approval of the board.
If the board finds that an applicant's identification card has not been revoked or placed under suspension and that the applicant has paid the renewal fee, has continued pharmacy education in accordance with the rules of the board, and is entitled to continue in the practice of pharmacy, the board shall issue a renewal identification card to the applicant.
When an identification card has lapsed for more than sixty days but application is made within three years after the expiration of the card, the applicant shall be issued a renewal identification card without further examination if the applicant meets the requirements of this section and pays the fee designated under division (A)(5) of section 4729.15 of the Revised Code.
