Designated Representative License
To be licensed as a Designated Representative in California, you must satisfy the requirements under Business and Professions Code section 4053. Wholesale operations that distribute dangerous drugs or dangerous devices must be supervised by a registered pharmacist or an individual approved by the board as a designated representative. These companies may not operate unless the pharmacist or designated representative is physically on the licensed premises. To ensure proper control at all times, the board recommends that there be more than one person approved to supervise operations.
