License/Registration Lookup​​​

The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy website is considered primary source verification and is actually the preferred method of licensure verification. Both JCAHO and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Office of the Inspector General, consider verification through the website as evidence of licensure.

Any disciplinary actions prior to 1997 may not be displayed.

A certified verification containing the Board seal may be ordered using the License/Registration Lookup listed above. If you have a verification form, please mail to the Board office for completion. There is a $5.00 fee for both the certified verification and completion of verification forms. Make checks payable to 'Kentucky State Treasurer'.​
