In compliance with Chapter 687 of the 2009 Acts of Assembly, the Board of Pharmacy has amended its regulations relating to the responsibility of the licensee or registrant to provide current addresses.

If a second address is not provided, the address of record becomes the public address. Regulations are amended to use the statutory terminology of address of record and to clarify that the regulant has a responsibility to notify the board within 30 days if there is a change in the address of record or the public address, if different from the address of record.
