License Renewal

Information About Renewal of All Registrations

Controlled Substance registrations expire on June 30 of odd years (e.g., 2019).

A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address the Division has on file. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online licensure system.

To complete the online renewal application, you must log in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, will be sent via email only.

It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that you may receive all email notices sent. To check and update your contact information online, log into your DELPROS user account, then click Manage Profile from the profile icon in the blue banner.

IMPORTANT: Facilities cannot change their location or distributing address online as it may require a new application.

Renewing Registrations

All active Controlled Substance Registrations must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked 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.

For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 3.1.3 of the Rules and Regulations.  After renewal, a percentage of licensees are randomly selected for audit of their CE.

Renewing Expired Registrations

If you do not renew your registration before the expiration date, the registration will expire. It is illegal to prescribe, store or dispense controlled substances in Delaware while the registration is expired.

You may file a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee.  Even though you can file a late renewal application, do not resume practicing, storing, or dispensing until your registration is actually renewed to active status. The late period is not a “grace period.”

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 in DELPROS as a new applicant.
