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.

410 ILCS 620/16

    (410 ILCS 620/16) (from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 516)
    Sec. 16. (a) The Director is hereby authorized to promulgate regulations exempting from any labeling or packaging requirement of this Act drugs and devices which are (i) in accordance with the practice of the trade, to be processed, labeled or repacked in substantial quantities at establishments other than those where originally processed or packaged on condition that such drugs and devices are not adulterated or misbranded under the provisions of this Act upon removal from such processing, labeling or repacking establishment or (ii) packaged, repackaged, or labeled to the extent permitted under the Illinois Drug Reuse Opportunity Program Act.
    (b) Drugs and device labeling or packaging exemptions adopted under the Federal Act and supplements thereto or revisions thereof shall apply to drugs and devices in Illinois except insofar as modified or rejected by regulations promulgated by the Director.
    (c) A drug intended for use by man which (A) is a habit-forming drug to which Section 15 (d) applies; or (B) because of its toxicity or other potentiality for harmful effect or the method of its use or the collateral measures necessary to its use is not safe for use except under the supervision of a practitioner licensed by law to administer such drug; or (C) is limited by an approved application under Section 505 of the Federal Act or Section 17 of this Act to use under the professional supervision of a practitioner licensed by law to administer such drug, shall be dispensed only in accordance with the provisions of the "Illinois Controlled Substances Act". The act of dispensing a drug contrary to the provisions of this paragraph shall be deemed to be an act which results in a drug being misbranded while held for sale.
    (d) Any drug dispensed by filling or refilling a written or oral prescription of a practitioner licensed by law to administer such drug shall be exempt from the requirements of Section 15, except subsections (a), (k) and (l) and clauses (2) and (3) of subsection (i), and the packaging requirements of subsections (g), (h) and (q), if the drug bears a label containing the proprietary name or names, or if there is none, the established name or names of the drugs, the dosage and quantity, unless the prescribing practitioner, in the interest of the health of the patient, directs otherwise in writing, the name and address of the dispenser, the serial number and date of the prescription or of its filling, the name of the prescriber and, if stated in the prescription, the name of the patient, and the directions for use and the cautionary statements, if any, contained in such prescription. This exemption shall not apply to any drug dispensed in the course of the conduct of business of dispensing drugs pursuant to diagnosis by mail, or to a drug dispensed in violation of subsection (a) of this Section.
    (e) The Director may by regulation remove drugs subject to Section 15 (d) and Section 17 from the requirements of subsection (c) of this Section when such requirements are not necessary for the protection of the public health.
    (f) A drug which is subject to subsection (c) of this Section shall be deemed to be misbranded if at any time before dispensing its label fails to bear the statement "Caution: Federal Law Prohibits Dispensing Without Prescription" or "Caution: State Law Prohibits Dispensing Without Prescription". A drug to which subsection (c) of this Section does not apply shall be deemed to be misbranded if at any time prior to dispensing its label bears the caution statement quoted in the preceding sentence.
    (g) Nothing in this Section shall be construed to relieve any person from any requirement prescribed by or under authority of law with respect to controlled substances now included or which may hereafter be included within the classifications of controlled substances cannabis as defined in applicable Federal laws relating to controlled substances or cannabis or the Cannabis Control Act.
