Controlled Substance registrations expire on June 30 of odd years (e.g., 2017).
Several weeks before your registration expiration date, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.
Please keep your contact information in our records up-to-date so that notices we send will reach you.
Starting with the 2017 renewal and every renewal after that, practitioners will be required to attest to completing the two hours of continuing education (CE) in the areas of controlled substance prescribing practices, treatment of chronic pain, or other topics related to prescribing controlled substances. See Section 3.1.3 of the Rules and Regulations. If you complete at least two hours of CE in these specific areas in connection with renewing your practitioner license, you may use the same CE to satisfy the two-hour requirement for renewing your controlled substance registration.
If you do not renew your registration before the expiration date, the registration will lapse.
You may file a late renewal application for a period of one year after the expiration date. In addition to the renewal fee, you must pay a late fee. Although you have a year to file a late renewal application, the late period is not a “grace period.” Do not resume prescribing, storing or dispensing in Delaware until the registration is actually renewed.
If you fail to renew within one year, the registration will terminate. To resume prescribing, storing or dispensing in Delaware, you must reapply for registration.
