§1230. Renewal of permits; expiration; reinstatement

            A.(1) Each pharmacy issued a permit by the board shall apply for renewal at the time designated by the board and shall pay a fee specified by the board.

            (2)(a)(i) The board shall assess on each pharmacy permit renewal required by this Section an additional fee of one hundred dollars per year to be designated as the "pharmacy education support fee". This fee shall be dedicated and allocated as specified in this Paragraph to an accredited school of pharmacy of a public university in this state. The board shall include on each permit renewal form issued to a pharmacy an optional election whereby the pharmacy may elect not to remit the one hundred dollar pharmacy education support fee.

            (ii) For purposes of this Paragraph, "accredited" shall mean possession of current accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.

            (b) The board shall disburse all monies collected pursuant to this Paragraph to an accredited public university pharmacy school in this state on or before April first annually. The public university pharmacy school shall utilize these monies solely for the benefit of its pharmacy education program and the expenditure of such funds shall be approved by the board of supervisors of the university system of which the university is a member. The funds collected pursuant to this Paragraph shall be in addition to any other monies received by the university that operates the pharmacy school and are intended to supplement and not replace, displace, or supplant any other funds that the university receives from the state or from any other source.

            B. Any person who desires to continue to operate or maintain a pharmacy within or outside of the state shall file an application with the board for renewal in such form and contain such information as the board may require and complete such other requirement as deemed necessary by the board.

            C. Application for renewal of a permit shall be made available on or before a date designated by the board. If a permit holder fails to make application to the board for renewal of his permit within a period determined by the board, the existing permit shall expire and become null and void.

            D. In order to reinstate an expired permit, the permit holder shall meet requirements established by the board.
