The California Board of Pharmacy (Board) was formed in 1891 to function as a state health regulatory agency. In 1971, the Board became part of the Department of Consumer Affairs. The Board licenses and regulates pharmacies, pharmacists, pharmacist interns, pharmacy technicians, and drug wholesalers.
The Board’s purpose is to serve the public by protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the people of California with integrity and honesty; advocating the highest quality of affordable pharmaceutical care; providing the best available information on pharmaceutical care; and promoting education, wellness and quality of life.
Mission: The Board protects, promotes, and advocates for the health and safety of Californians by pursuing the highest quality of pharmacists’ care and the appropriate use of pharmaceuticals through education, communication, licensing, legislation, regulation, and enforcement.
Vision: Healthy Californians through quality pharmacist’s care.
