Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
225 ILCS 85/15
(225 ILCS 85/15)
(from Ch. 111, par. 4135)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
(1) It shall be unlawful
for the owner of any pharmacy, as defined in this Act, to operate or conduct
the same, or to allow the same to be
operated or conducted, unless:
(a) It has a licensed pharmacist, authorized to
practice pharmacy in this State under the provisions of this Act, on duty whenever the practice of pharmacy is conducted;
(b) Security provisions for all drugs and devices, as
determined by rule of the Department, are provided during the absence from the licensed pharmacy of all licensed pharmacists. Maintenance of security provisions is the responsibility of the licensed pharmacist in charge; and
(c) The pharmacy is licensed under this Act to
conduct the practice of pharmacy in any and all forms from the physical address of the pharmacy's primary inventory where U.S. mail is delivered. If a facility, company, or organization operates multiple pharmacies from multiple physical addresses, a separate pharmacy license is required for each different physical address.
(2) The Department may allow a pharmacy that is not located at the same location as its home pharmacy and at which pharmacy services are provided during an emergency situation, as defined by rule, to be operated as an emergency remote pharmacy. An emergency remote pharmacy operating under this subsection (2) shall operate under the license of the home pharmacy.
(3) The Secretary may waive the requirement for a pharmacist to be on duty
at all times for State facilities not treating human ailments. This waiver of the requirement remains in effect until it is rescinded by the Secretary and the Department provides written notice of the rescission to the State facility.
(4) It shall be unlawful for any person, who is not a licensed pharmacy
or health care facility, to purport to be such or to use in name, title,
or sign designating, or in connection with that place of business,
any of the words: "pharmacy", "pharmacist", "pharmacy department",
"apothecary", "druggist", "drug", "drugs", "medicines", "medicine store",
"drug sundries", "prescriptions filled", or any list of words indicating
that drugs are compounded or sold to the lay public, or prescriptions
are dispensed therein. Each day during which, or a part which, such
representation is made or appears or such a sign is allowed to remain
upon or in such a place of business shall constitute a separate offense
under this Act.
(5) The holder of any license shall conspicuously
display it in the pharmacy in which he is engaged in the practice of
pharmacy. The pharmacist in charge shall conspicuously
display his name in such pharmacy. The pharmacy license shall also
be conspicuously displayed.
