Section 4729.09 | Reciprocity.
The state board of pharmacy may license an individual as a pharmacist without examination if the individual:
(A) Holds a license in good standing to practice pharmacy under the laws of another state, has successfully completed an examination for licensure in the other state, and in the opinion of the board, the examination was at least as thorough as that required by the board at the time the individual took the examination;
(B) Has filed with the licensing body of the other state at least the credentials or the equivalent that were required by this state at the time the other state licensed the individual as a pharmacist.
The board shall not issue a license to practice pharmacy to an individual licensed in another state if the state in which the individual is licensed does not reciprocate by granting licenses to practice pharmacy to individuals holding valid licenses received through examination by the state board of pharmacy.
