Mailed it June1 (overnight mail) so NABP received it June2. Received deficiency letter from NABP (forgot to include my state issued ID: driver's license or passport) June4. I mailed June5 my deficient document (overnight mail). They mailed my eligibility letter dated June15 but I got it June18. So I guess it took them 5 business days to evaluate my complete documents.

What does

Silence from them means still they need something??? and they have put the file away for time being and they are dealing with other files which they think can make it for April?What could the silence means when April 5th is not far?I called and checked no correspondance has yet been mailed again to me so far.......

when did you mail it? was it an overnight, priority mail? did you include your EE# and did you sign your letter? If you did all of the above then just be patient and concentrate on your review because if you make in time for the April exam, it would be best that you are mentally and emotionally prepared. Have faith...

All the documents required were either sent by overnight/Fedex/certified mail

Last and final doc received by them was 8 days ago.Checked today no correspondance mailed .......

Its a big distraction .......need peace of mind to focus 100%

I didnt mail the original just to let you know.....bcz i thought they will start my count down again if i do(also the conversation with them reaffirmed me that they dont probably like originals sent to them atleast customer service doesnt) ......may be the evaluator likes it.........so due to mentioned reasons i am confused ......but i can mail it anytime (very much confused)........trying to be patient.......

Toni thanks for your time and concern i appreciate it.

This is what you did:

I submitted official proof of registration as NABP person explained me which is as follows:

1-Photocopy of the registration certificate attested and signed by the official from pharmacy council in a sealed and signed envelope

2-Letter of good standing issued by them in sealed and signed envelope

 

This is what I have to say about it:

NABP states, "Certified photocopies of the documents are those where the words, “I have reviewed the original document and attest that this is a true and exact copy of the original” must be written directly on the photocopy by a notary public, and include the notary public seal and signature. If a document is longer than one page, each page must be certified. Present both the original document and a photocopy to the notary public for proper certification. The FPGEC will not accept photocopies of documents that have been certified by you or that are not properly certified. In addition, the FPGEC will not acceptTrue Copy,” Certified True Copy,” or “Attested Copy” in lieu of the attestation statement indicated above. If you are unable to submit properly certified photocopies of your additional supporting documentation, the original documents must be submitted directly to the FPGEC. You must request, in writing to the FPGEC, to have original documents be returned.

2. You sent another set of documents, was it PHOTOCOPY again? It said on the letter you received from them that they need the OFFICIAL documents in a signed and sealed envelope.

NABP states, "Official documents are those that include an inked or impressed seal or stamp of the issuing body. Official documents must also include an inked signature of the individual from the issuing body authorized to certify the document. The official document must be submitted in an envelope sealed by the appropriate issuing body. A seal, stamp, or signature of an official must overlap the flap closure and the envelope. The sealed envelope may be submitted to the FPGEC by you or the issuing body.

 

Did you call customer service and said that a photocopy is ok? Unfortunately, that person didn't tell you that there's a requirement regarding photocopied documents. So for now, all you need to do is wait. I know that a lot of us had gone through some sort of hardship and been put to a tight scrutiny. We are at their mercy. Anyway, let's hope for the best.

The proper procedure as it is mentioned above was followed........It was not just photocopy i think the better word is official photocopy or official copy (in which the official authorized by issuing body signs and stamps and then puts it in a envelope and close it and then sign and stamp it every where specially on flap)...........

 

Yeah Its different from certified copies .For that you go to notary public who writes the statement (true and original one) i did it only for photo identification

 

Thanks for your time and you were so right about when you said i need peace of mind to focus in your previous post ............

Don't be mad. But I think I know now what you're trying to say. You sent a COPY/PHOTOCOPY and you thought it's OFFICIAL because it was INSIDE a sealed envelope with the sign and seal of the issuing body on the flap. Unfortunately, they told you that it was NOT according to the required procedure (am I wrong? Because this is what you wrote the first time). And this is what I'm trying to say that if you sent a PHOTOCOPY of the registration certificate, it should be ACCORDING to NABP's required notarization procedures (which I explained). And since you did not comply with the proper notarization requirement, they want you to send the OFFICIAL document meaning the ORIGINAL DOCUMENT that you received the year you passed your country's pharmacy board. But this time it needs to be INSIDE the sealed envelope with the sign and seal from the issuing body on the flap.

Am I still confusing you? That's why I suggested that you send the original copy as requested by NABP. Because I know some who did what NABP had told them regarding their deficiency and they are all set to take the exam. I for instance had a deficiency too because I forgot to include a state issued ID. When I provided it as requested, I got my ATT after 5 business days.

Let's just think positive ok. Maybe NABP is checking with the issuing body the authenticity of your documents that's why it's taking them so long.

Hello all

 

I am planning to write the FPGEE in Sep 2010. I am currently in the US and I have completed my Bachelor in Pharmacy from Karnataka, India. I have jus started to collect the paperwork to be sent to ECE and NABP. I have to get a good standing certificate from the Karnataka Pharmacy Council, India. I have a few questions:

 

1. Does the council in India send the good standing certificate to me or do the ECE directly.

2. I have my transcripts sealed and signed across in an envelope by my college Principal where I finished my degree. I wanted to know if my degree has to be sealed and signed across aswell.

3. Also do I have to send my registration certificate sealed and signed in an envelope aswell.

 

This is a very helpful thread and hope you help me out here guys.

1. Does the council in India send the good standing certificate to me or do the ECE directly

 

The sealed envelope may be submitted to the FPGEC by you or the issuing body. And if you meant certificate of good standing of your LICENSE, this one goes to NABP as part of your FPGEC documents. I would suggest that you gather all the documents and send it altogether so it doesn't get lost.

 

2. I have my transcripts sealed and signed across in an envelope by my college Principal where I finished my degree. I wanted to know if my degree has to be sealed and signed across aswell.

 

In my case, I sent my transcripts (2 sets) as an original document with sign and school seal in each page then the whole thing placed inside a sealed envelope with sign and school seal on the flap (a must) to ECE. Then I sent my official proof of degree in it's ORIGINAL-not photocopy-document without thesigned/sealed envelope. And I know for sure you can send it in a sealed and signed envelope, too.

3. Also do I have to send my registration certificate sealed and signed in an envelope as well.

 

I sent mine in it's ORIGINAL form and did not placed it in a signed and sealed envelope. So likewise, it can also be sent in a sealed and signed envelope.

 

I just want to be clear that what I say here is based on my experience so don't get confused. Goodluck!

Hi Toni,

 

Im planning to take the Sept 2010 exam, and was a bit confused about the documents requirements. I have a couple of questions to ask you.

 

1. Did you send both the transcripts to ECE?

 

2. Did u send TWO originals of the registration certificate and proofs of degree? or did u send only 1...obviously everyone is generally issued only 1 original...but the NABP website asks for 2 copies...so i was wondering if u have to somehow get 2 originals issued from ur issuing bodies (which would be quite a pain)...or you can send 1 original and 1 notarized copy.....or 2 notarized copies will also do?

 

Please do reply, as my confusion is really mounting reading all the posts :)

 

thanks,

 

Rhea pharmacist.

Hi Rhea

 

They only 2 copies needed is for the transcripts which are not hard to get. You send it to ECE (together with the official degree/diploma) and ECE will be the one forwarding the extra copy to NABP together with the evaluation report. And Registration certificate is what you send to NABP. I don't know about notarized copies since I sent the original ones whenever they ask for OFFICIAL documents. Though if you plan to send a photocopy, just make sure to have it notarized as required by NABP. Or maybe call/email them and ask for further additional information. Goodluck!

sorry for the late reply. anyway, if your country issues registration to practice pharmacy then you need to have a registration certificate. NABP requires that a registration certificate be submitted to them for evaluation though they also state that if you don't have one, all you have to do is ask from PCI (issuing body for regsitration) to provide a letter stating why you can't have a certificate. Please read below:

 

NABP states:

Official Proof of Licensure and/or Registration

Official proof of a license and/or registration to practice pharmacy in the country or jurisdiction where you earned a pharmacy degree is required. Each license and/or registration must be unrestricted and certified by the appropriate government official of the jurisdiction issuing the license or registration. The documentation must include the date that the license and/or registration was issued.

If a license and/or registration is required to practice pharmacy in the country or jurisdiction where you earned a pharmacy degree, you must obtain the license and/or registration in that country or jurisdiction to be considered for FPGEC Certification. If both a license and registration are required, you must submit official documentation of both.

If you were not a citizen of the country or jurisdiction where your pharmacy degree was earned, and therefore were unable to obtain licensure and/or registration to practice pharmacy, you must submit

1. official proof of licensure and/or registration in whichever country or jurisdiction it was obtained; and

2. an official statement, issued by the appropriate government official of the country or jurisdiction where your degree was earned, confirming that you would be eligible for licensure and/or registration if you were a citizen.

 

If you were not a citizen of the country or jurisdiction where your pharmacy degree was earned and would have been eligible to obtain licensure and/ or registration to practice pharmacy there, however, neither was obtained, you must submit

1. official proof of licensure and/or registration in whichever country or jurisdiction it was obtained; and

2. an official statement, issued by the appropriate government official of the country or jurisdiction where your degree was earned, confirming that you would be eligible for licensure and/or registration.

 

If neither a license and/or registration are required to practice pharmacy in the country or jurisdiction where you earned a pharmacy degree, you must submit

1. a request for an “Affidavit for Failure to Obtain Licensure in a Foreign Jurisdiction” with the application materials (The FPGEC will provide further information concerning this procedure to eligible candidates.); and

2. official documentation verified by the pharmacy school or the applicable government agency that neither licensure nor registration was required to practice pharmacy.

Note: If you did not obtain a passing FPGEE score in the past and are applying to retake the FPGEE, your previously submitted documentation will be reevaluated. If there is additional documentation required, the FPGEC will notify you in writing.

It would be best that you have all the documents needed for evaluation before apply so that you won't be disappointed later on. Goodluck!

Ann: When did you finally received the confirmation from NABP to sit in exam? How long did they took in processing your Proof of Reg. and Good Standing Certificate?

Please advise.

Thanks
