B. Upon the pharmacist in charge certifying to the board, on forms prescribed by the board, that the facility is secure, suitable for operation as a pharmacy and in compliance with applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations governing the practice of pharmacy.

2. Facility inspection.  Licensed pharmacies that open and operate pursuant to subsection 1, paragraph B must be inspected by a member of the board or its representative within 30 days of opening. Facilities that are found to be insecure, not suitable for operation as a pharmacy or not in compliance with applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations governing the practice of pharmacy are subject to a board-ordered emergency revocation of the license. The pharmacy may not operate after revocation. The emergency revocation is a final agency action and is not subject to judicial review, but a new application for licensure may be submitted pursuant to section 13752, and if approved, a site inspection must be performed pursuant to subsection 1, paragraph A.
