< > Effective - 28 Aug 2012, 3 histories, see footnote (history) bottom

  338.333.  License required, temporary licenses may be granted — out-of-state distributors, reciprocity allowed, when. — 1.  Except as otherwise provided by the board of pharmacy by rule in the event of an emergency or to alleviate a supply shortage, no person or distribution outlet shall act as a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor without first obtaining license to do so from the Missouri board of pharmacy and paying the required fee.  The board may grant temporary licenses when the wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor first applies for a license to operate within the state.  Temporary licenses shall remain valid until such time as the board shall find that the applicant meets or fails to meet the requirements for regular licensure.  No license shall be issued or renewed for a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor to operate unless the same shall be operated in a manner prescribed by law and according to the rules and regulations promulgated by the board of pharmacy with respect thereto.  Separate licenses shall be required for each distribution site owned or operated by a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor, unless such drug distributor or pharmacy distributor meets the requirements of section 338.335.

  2.  An agent or employee of any licensed or registered wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor need not seek licensure under this section and may lawfully possess pharmaceutical drugs, if he is acting in the usual course of his business or employment.

  3.  The board may permit out-of-state wholesale drug distributors or out-of-state pharmacy distributors to be licensed as required by sections 338.210 to 338.370 on the basis of reciprocity to the extent that an out-of-state wholesale drug distributor or out-of-state pharmacy distributor both:

  (1)  Possesses a valid license granted by another state pursuant to legal standards comparable to those which must be met by a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor of this state as prerequisites for obtaining a license under the laws of this state; and

  (2)  Distributes into Missouri from a state which would extend reciprocal treatment under its own laws to a wholesale drug distributor or pharmacy distributor of this state.
