There are two different types of In-State Pharmacies licenses that a facility can apply for in Delaware.
Submit an In-State Pharmacy application when:
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. Official license verifications and/or transcripts are acceptable when received electronically directly from the State Board or school/institution. Note that forms requiring a signature, seal, or notary must be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document. 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:
In addition to submitting the application, fee, and supporting documentation required in the previous section, in DELPROS, you must also submit:
In addition to meeting all the requirements above, the pharmacy must be inspected before opening. A pharmacy representative must notify the Board office when the pharmacy is ready for inspection. When the pharmacy passes the final inspection, the Board office will issue the license.
If an in-state pharmacy will be remodeling but there is no change in ownership nor location, submit an Service Request for Instate Pharmacy Remodeling in DELPROS instead of a new In-State Pharmacy Permit application. You will be asked questions in the service request about whether your pharmacy will be using a temporary location outside of your facility or not. You will get a temporary permit for the temporary location. Inspections are required for all remodels. See the Pharmacy Remodeling webpage for more information.
If the in-state pharmacy’s name changes but there is no change in ownership nor location, submit a Service Request for Name Change in the DELPROS online portal. When your service request has been processed, you will be notified that you can print your updated license. The license number will not change.
If the in-state pharmacy stores and/or dispenses controlled substances, you must also apply for a Controlled Substance Facility license. Before dispensing controlled substances in Delaware, a pharmacy must have a Delaware Pharmacy permit, Delaware controlled substance registration and federal DEA permit. All pharmacies dispensing controlled substances must report to the Delaware Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). For instructions on registering for the PMP, see the Dispenser’s Implementation Guide.
