The Kansas Board of Pharmacy conducted a Technician CE Audit from mid-January to mid-April and found about 200 people hadn’t completed the now mandatory requirements. Officials reached out to those technicians via mail and email, and were given several opportunities to provide proof of completion of their CE. About half of those technicians had their license revoked due to lack of response back to the BOP. Others are being fined and having to do make-up CE.
The revocations are active as of May 16. Inspectors will be actively looking for compliance on this matter as part of their routine inspections.
