Pharmacy technicians can renew their annual practice permit in myACP. The Renewing your practice permit guide provides step-by-step instructions to help you renew your practice permit in myACP.
Pharmacy technicians must complete annual Continuing Competence Program (CCP) requirements and apply to renew their practice permit each year.
For pharmacy technicians, renewal is available starting October 1 of each year. To renew, you must submit your application to renew your permit by November 30. Late applications received in December will be assessed a non-compliance fee. If you don’t renew, your existing practice permit terminates on December 31, and you are no longer permitted to practise as a pharmacy technician.
Individuals on the associate (non-regulated member) register may choose to renew as an associate prior to December 31 using the process below. An associate is not required to complete the CCP requirements and may start at step 2 to renew as an associate. If you don’t renew, your registration will be cancelled effective January 1.
To renew your practice permit, you must complete the following steps:
If you no longer intend to practise in the pharmacy technician profession and do not wish to renew your practice permit, you may choose to cancel your registration or apply to a register for non-regulated members: associate or retired. During the renewal period, you may move to an inactive status that takes effect January 1 using the application to renew your permit found in the myACP Catalog. Your inactive status will take effect January 1, and you will no longer be permitted to practise pharmacy. For more information on cancelled status and the associate or retired register or to cancel your registration immediately, see the webpage on moving to an inactive status.
