• Question: Are complaints and investigative materials public information?


    No, under Iowa statute, all complaint files and investigative information in the Board's possession are privileged and confidential. These materials are not subject to public disclosure except to the licensee, but only if formal charges have been filed against the licensee. The material may, however, be released to the appropriate licensing authority in another state in which the licensee is licensed or has applied for a license. Formal statements of charges, settlement agreements, and final decisions of the Board are public records. The Board reports formal disciplinary actions to a disciplinary clearinghouse maintained by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy and to the National Practitioner Databank.
