TITLE: Incorporating Criminal Background Checks into the NABP e-Profile System

WHEREAS, the NABP Clearinghouse is a vital tool for member state boards of pharmacy to assess licensure or registration of applicants and to monitor professional accountability; and

WHEREAS, some member state boards of pharmacy require a criminal background check as a condition of licensure or registration; and

WHEREAS, providing a means for prospective licensees and registrants to obtain a criminal background check through their NABP e-Profile could prove to be a cost-effective and efficient means of facilitating licensure or registration and could reduce barriers to license portability;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NABP staff investigate and report on whether and how criminal background checks may be included in the NABP e-Profile system.

(Resolution passed at the 116th Annual Meeting.)
