New Licenses Required For Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs)

Read the full article, "New Licenses Required For Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs)," recently published in the Winter 2015 edition of The Script - by the California State Board of Pharmacy (PDF):

"Companies that do not own, but receive, store, select and ship prescription drugs and prescription devices into or within California need to obtain a third-party logistics provider (3PL) license immediately with the California State Board of Pharmacy.

Federal legislation enacted in November 2013 directed that 3PLs must be regulated as a separate class and not as a drug wholesaler."

AB 2605 (a new law):
  • "Creates a new licensure class of 3PLs and nonresident 3PLs for those businesses that do not own, but receive, store and ship prescription drugs and prescription devices;
  • Creates a new licensure class of “designated representative-3PL” for individuals who work in the 3PLs and possess the knowledge and experience necessary to be responsible for the quality of stored and shipped prescription items on a 3PL premises; and
  • Creates a new qualifying category of licensure for a responsible manager called “designated representative-3PL,” who acts as the facility manager and representative in charge of the 3PL."
