Pharmacy Name Changes

Please familiarize yourself with the applicable rules and laws regarding the practice of pharmacy in Iowa prior to the submission of any application.

Instate Pharmacies - A change of the name under which the pharmacy is doing business shall require submission of a pharmacy license application and nonrefundable fee prior to the change of name.

Nonresident Pharmacies - A change of the pharmacy name which is provided to patients requires submission of a pharmacy license application and nonrefundable fee within ten (10) days after issuance by the home state regulatory authority of a license bearing the new name.

If the pharmacy also holds an Iowa CSA registration, then the application must include the nonrefundable fee to change the CSA registration.  

New license numbers will not be issued for instate or nonresident pharmacies. 

The old license/registration must be returned to the Board office within ten (10) days of receiving the updated license certificate. 

Penalty fees will be assessed for late submissions.
