Pharmacy Remodeling



Pharmacy Remodeling

In-state Retail or Hospital pharmacies must notify the Board office of plans to remodel and obtain a permit for the remodeled pharmacy. If the pharmacy will operate from a temporary location during the remodeling, requirements depend on where the temporary facility is. The questions you answer in the Service Request determine the need for a temporary permit for the temporary location or an inspection.

The temporary facility, regardless of whether or not it is in the same building, must also be inspected before it begins operation. The Board will review and tentatively approve the remodel contingent on the pharmacy passing final inspection. A pharmacy representative must notify the Board office when the remodeled pharmacy is ready for inspection. When the pharmacy passes the final inspection, the Board office will transfer the prior license number to the remodeled pharmacy.

  • If the temporary facility is in the same building and has the same mailing address as the permanent facility undergoing remodeling, make clear which set of plans are for the remodeled location and which are for the temporary location. You will need an inspection before and after the remodel but do not need a temporary permit.
  • If the temporary facility is in a different building or has a different mailing address than the permanent facility undergoing remodeling, you will need a temporary permit for the new location. There is a fee for the temporary permit. The temporary facility must also be inspected before remodel before it begins operation and again when the remodel in your other location is ready to operate.

To make this request, you must submit an Instate Pharmacy Remodel Service Request in the DELPROS online portal. There is a fee for a temporary permit.


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).
