Outsourcing facilities shall submit a copy of all adverse event reports submitted to the secretary of health and human services in accordance with the content and format requirements established in section 310.305 of title 21 of the code of federal regulations, or any successor regulation, to the executive secretary for the state board of pharmacy.
