Medical Gas Dispenser License

When to Apply

A Medical Gas Dispenser is a facility that sells medical gases directly to patients in Delaware. However, if you are a facility that distributes medical gases to other facilities authorized to possess medical gases—instead of selling directly to patients, you should submit the Distributor (Pharmacy-Wholesale) application in DELPROS, our online professional licensing system.

Submit a Medical Gas Dispenser application when:

  • applying for an initial license as a Medical Gas Dispenser.
  • re-applying when a previous Delaware license has lapsed and is no longer renewable.
  • you must report that a Delaware-licensed Medical Gas Dispenser:
    • changes ownership (controlling interest), or
    • relocates

    Information on How to Apply for a License in DELPROS

    Applications are processed in DELPROS (Delaware Professional Regulation Online Services). The online license application process is simple and provides you with clear instructions throughout each stage of the application process. We strongly recommend that you understand what the requirements are for the license you are pursuing. Then, request and gather the documents you need before you begin the application process. Most of the information and forms are on this website. For further clarification of requirements, refer to your profession’s License Law and the Rules and Regulations.

    In order to apply for a license or service request, you must have a DELPROS account. To create a new account or log into an existing DELPROS account, follow the instructions at the beginning of the application process. As part of the final steps of the application process, DELPROS instructs you to either “attach” or “upload” the required documents directly to your application and/or to “acknowledge” that you will either send them in yourself or make arrangements for “third-party” documents/forms to be sent to the Board office. Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state. These forms usually require a signature, seal, or notary, therefore, must be mailed into the Board office directly. All documents received by mail are scanned and attached to the appropriate license records.

    In DELPROS, you have the ability to save your application and return to it to edit/update information or upload documents for up to six months. However, if you do not submit your application within six months, you will have to restart your online application process. The Board office begins processing applications shortly after submission in the portal. You may check the status of your application in the DELPROS system throughout the whole process and we will correspond with you by email. The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).


    In addition to submitting the application and fee in DELPROS, you must submit:

    • A Medical Gas Dispenser Permit-Information about Ownership form for all of the following:
      • Designated Representative (DR) or most senior person responsible for facility operations, purchasing, and inventory control
      • Supervisor of the DR or most senior person responsible for facility operations, purchasing and inventory control
      • If the distributor is not a publicly held company, all principals and owners who directly or indirectly own more than 10% interest in the company
    • State of Delaware and Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal background checks (CBC)from each person who is required to complete a Medical Gas -Information_About_Ownership form. Follow the instructions on the Criminal History Record Check Authorization form to arrange to be fingerprinted. Submit the forms and payment to the State Bureau of Identification (SBI). Do not send these forms to the Board office.
      • Allow at least four weeks for the SBI to send criminal history records to the Board office.
      • A new criminal background check is required even if the person recently had a criminal background check done for some other reason.
    • A copy of one set of the plans for the dispenser facility.
      • Plans must be drawn to scale and should show the area where medical gases will be dispensed, storage area, all entryways and security systems.
      • Plans must also show the type of alarm system installed and the name, address, and phone of the provider.

    Reporting a Medical Gas Dispenser Name Change

    If the facility’s name changes, but there is no change in ownership nor in location, submit a Name Change Service Request in DELPROS. The license number will not change. When completed, you will be notified and you may print the updated license.

    Controlled Substances Registration

    IMPORTANT: The facility also distributes controlled substances, you must submit a separate Controlled Substances – Facility application in the DELPROS online portal.
