About National Association of Boards of Pharmacy
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) was founded in 1904 and represents all of the pharmacy regulatory and licensing jurisdictions in the United States, eight providences in Canada, and Australia.
Its purpose is to serve as the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its member boards and jurisdictions in developing, implementing, and enforcing uniform standards for the purpose of protecting the public health.
NABP (1) assists the state boards of pharmacy in protecting the public health and welfare, (2) serves as an information and disciplinary clearinghouse for the interstate transfer of licensure among the state boards of pharmacy, and (3) provides model regulations in order to assist the state boards of pharmacy with the development of uniform practice, educational, and competency standards for the practice of pharmacy.
