Rule effective: April 7, 2017
Final rule of the Department of Health, Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission, adopts regulations under WAC 246-874-010 through -070 and repeals regulations under WAC 246-869-120 and -872-010 through -872-050 regarding pharmacy and technology, including automated drug distribution devices (ADDDs). The rule sets forth requirements for installing and operating ADDDs and specifies supervision, access, security, recordkeeping, accountability and quality assurance standards. The rule also eliminates the requirement for commission approval for use of ADDDs and removes provisions concerning mechanical devices in hospitals.
