Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

The Department shall exercise the powers and duties prescribed by the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois for the administration of Licensing Acts and shall exercise such other powers and duties necessary for effectuating the purpose of this Act. The powers and duties of the Department also include:
    (a) Formulation of such rules, not inconsistent with law and subject to the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, as may be necessary to carry out the purposes and enforce the provisions of this Act. The Secretary may grant variances from any such rules as provided for in this Section.
    (b) The suspension, revocation, placing on probationary status, reprimand, refusing to issue or restore, or taking any other disciplinary or non-disciplinary action against any license issued under the provisions of this Act for the reasons set forth in Section 30 of this Act.
    (c) The issuance, renewal, restoration, or reissuance of any license or certificate which has been previously refused to be issued or renewed, or has been revoked, suspended or placed on probationary status.
    (c-5) The granting of variances from rules promulgated pursuant to this Section in individual cases where there is a finding that:
        (1) the provision from which the variance is granted
is not statutorily mandated;
        (2) no party will be injured by the granting of the
variance; and
        (3) the rule from which the variance is granted
would, in the particular case, be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
    The Secretary shall give consideration to the recommendations of the State Board of Pharmacy regarding granting of such variance and the reasons therefor.
    (d) The Secretary shall appoint a chief pharmacy coordinator who shall be a licensed pharmacist in good standing in this State, shall be a graduate of an accredited college of pharmacy or hold, at a minimum, a bachelor of science degree in pharmacy, and shall have at least 5 years of experience in the practice of pharmacy immediately prior to his or her appointment. The chief pharmacy coordinator shall be the executive administrator and the chief enforcement officer of this Act.
    (e) The Department shall, in conformity with the Personnel Code, employ such pharmacy investigators as deemed necessary who shall report to the chief pharmacy coordinator. Each pharmacy investigator shall be a licensed pharmacist unless employed as a pharmacy investigator on or before August 27, 2015 (the effective date of Public Act 99-473). The Department shall also employ at least one attorney to prosecute violations of this Act and its rules. The Department may, in conformity with the Personnel Code, employ such clerical and other employees as are necessary to carry out the duties of the Board and Department.
