    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
    Sec. 16. The Department shall require and provide for the licensure of every pharmacy doing business in this State. Such licensure shall expire 30 days after the pharmacist in charge dies or is no longer employed by the pharmacy or after such pharmacist's license has been suspended or revoked.
    In the event the pharmacist in charge dies or otherwise ceases to function in that capacity, or when the license of the pharmacist in charge has been suspended or revoked, the owner of the pharmacy shall be required to notify the Department, on forms provided by the Department, of the identity of the new pharmacist in charge.
    It is the duty of every pharmacist in charge who ceases to function in that capacity to report to the Department within 30 days of the date on which he ceased such functions for such pharmacy. It is the duty of every owner of a pharmacy licensed under this Act to report to the Department within 30 days of the date on which the pharmacist in charge died or ceased to function in that capacity and to specify a new pharmacist in charge. Failure to provide such notification to the Department shall be grounds for disciplinary action.
    No license shall be issued to any pharmacy unless such pharmacy has a pharmacist in charge and each such pharmacy license shall indicate on the face thereof the pharmacist in charge.
