65-16,102.Same; maintenance of program by the board of pharmacy; rules and regulations; waiver and liability. (a) The board shall establish and maintain a program for a statewide electronic logging system for sale of methamphetamine precursors.

(b) Each pharmacy shall maintain an electronic methamphetamine precursor recording log documenting the sale of methamphetamine precursors. The board shall promulgate rules and regulations specifying a standardized format for the log and the information that each pharmacy shall submit to the board, which shall include, but not be limited to:

(1) The name and address of the person purchasing, receiving or otherwise acquiring the methamphetamine precursor;

(2) the name of the product and quantity purchased;

(3) the date and time of the purchase; and

(4) the name, or initials, of the licensed pharmacist, registered pharmacy technician or pharmacy intern or clerk supervised by a licensed pharmacist who sold the product.

(c) Notwithstanding the requirements of this section, each pharmacy shall maintain the purchaser's signature in accordance with subsection (k) of K.S.A. 65-1643, and amendments thereto.

(d) Each pharmacy that is capable shall submit the information from the log in real time in accordance with transmission methods specified in rules and regulations promulgated by the board.

(e) The board may grant a waiver exempting a pharmacy from compliance with the requirements of this section upon showing of good cause by the pharmacy that it is otherwise unable to submit log information by electronic means for various reasons, including, but not limited to, mechanical or electronic failure or financial, technological or any other undue burden on the pharmacy, established by rules and regulations. Such waiver may permit the pharmacy to submit log information by paper form or other means, provided that all information required by rules and regulations is submitted in this alternative format.

(f) No pharmacy or pharmacy employee shall be liable to any person in a civil action for damages or other relief arising from a sale of a methamphetamine precursor that occurs at another pharmacy.

(g) The requirements of this section shall not apply where there is a lawful prescription present for the methamphetamine precursor sold.
