32-1931. Permit fees; issuance; expiration; renewals; online profiles
A. The board shall assign the permit of all persons or firms issued under this chapter to one of two permit renewal groups. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a holder of a permit designated in the licensing database as even by way of verbiage or numerical value shall renew it biennially on or before November 1 of the even-numbered year, two years after the last renewal date. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a holder of a permit designated in the licensing database as odd by way of verbiage or numerical value shall renew it biennially on or before November 1 of the odd-numbered year, two years after the last renewal date. Failure to renew and pay all required fees on or before November 1 of the year in which the renewal is due suspends the permit. The board shall vacate a suspension when the permittee pays penalties of not to exceed $350 and all past due fees. The board may waive collection of a fee or penalty due after suspension under conditions established by a majority of the board.
B. Permit fees that are designated to be not more than a maximum amount shall be set by the board for the following two fiscal years beginning November 1. The board shall establish the fees approximately proportionate to the maximum fee allowed to cover the board's anticipated expenditures for the following two fiscal years. Variation in a fee is not effective except at the expiration date of the permit.
C. Applications for permits shall be accompanied by the following biennial fees as determined pursuant to subsection B of this section:
1. A drug manufacturer's permit, not more than $1,000.
2. A pharmacy permit, not more than $500.
3. A limited service pharmacy permit or an automated prescription-dispensing kiosk permit, not more than $500.
4. A full service wholesale drug permit or a third-party logistics provider permit, not more than $1,000.
5. A nonprescription drug wholesale permit, not more than $500.

If an applicant is found to be satisfactory to the board, the executive director shall issue to the applicant a permit for each pharmacy, manufacturer, wholesaler or other place of business in which drugs are sold, manufactured, compounded, dispensed, stocked, exposed or offered for sale, for which application is made.
E. Permits issued under this section are not transferable.
F. If a permittee does not apply for renewal, the permit expires pursuant to subsection A of this section. A person may activate and renew an expired permit by filing the required application and fee. Renewal thirty days after the expiration date of a permit may be made only on payment of the required biennial renewal fee, all past due fees and a penalty of one-half of the amount of the applicable biennial renewal fee. The board may waive the collection of a fee or penalty due after suspension pursuant to conditions prescribed by the board.
G. A permittee shall create an online profile using the board's licensing software.
