Annual Performance Measures

The Oregon State Board of Pharmacy consists of nine members. Five of these members are licensed pharmacists, two are licensed pharmacy technicians and two are representatives of the public. The Governor appoints each member of the Board for a term of four years, subject to approval by the State Senate, and they may be reappointed. 

The Board regulates the Practice of Pharmacy and enforces laws regarding pharmacists, drug outlets and the sale of drugs in Oregon. The Board generally meets in alternate months for a two-day meeting where disciplinary cases are reviewed and current issues are discussed. These meetings are open to the public. 
The Board was created in 1891. By licensing pharmacists, it ensures that only qualified people practice pharmacy in Oregon. The Board registers and inspects retail and hospital pharmacies and stores that sell over-the-counter drugs. It also registers and inspects drug wholesalers and manufacturers, and regulates the quality and distribution of all drugs in Oregon.
The Board’s inspectors investigate improper use of controlled drugs and other violations of administrative rules. License and registration fees finance all of the Board’s activities.
The Board has five key performance measures.  Annual Performance Measures
