|(a) When determining the appropriate sanction for a
disciplinary action taken by a regulatory board of another state under §565.001(a)(16), §565.002(a)(13),
or §568.003(a)(13), the board has determined that the following
shall be applicable for all types of licensees and registrants for
such licenses and registrations issued by the board.
(1) If the other state's disciplinary action resulted
in the license or registration being restricted, suspended, revoked,
or surrendered, the appropriate sanction shall be the same as the
sanction imposed by the other state, such that the licensee or registrant
has the same restriction against practice in Texas.
(2) If the license or registration is subject to any
other type of disciplinary sanctions, the appropriate sanction shall
be equivalent to or less than that imposed by the other state unless
contrary to board policy.
(b) The sanctions imposed by this chapter can be used
in conjunction with other types of disciplinary actions, including
administrative penalties, as outlined in this chapter.
(c) When a licensee or registrant has additional violations
of the Texas Pharmacy Act, the board shall consider imposing additional
more severe types of disciplinary sanctions, as deemed necessary.
