Vendor Registration

Businesses That Must Register as Vendors

Businesses that wish to manufacture and sell tamper-resistant prescription forms for use by Delaware healthcare practitioners must register with the Delaware Division of Professional Regulation (DPR).  When approved as an authorized vendor…

  • DPR will issue a Vendor ID to the business.
  • DPR will list registered vendors on its website.

Security Requirements

  • The purpose of tamper-resistant prescription forms is to reduce prescription fraud.  Rules and Regulations specify not only how the forms are designed and printed but also related security procedures for accessing materials and processing orders. Registered vendors must fully comply with these rules and are subject to unannounced inspection.  The Quick Reference Guide summarizes the rules.
  • Only Healthcare practitioners who hold an active Delaware professional license with prescriptive authority (e.g., physicians, dentists) are authorized to purchase tamper-resistant prescription forms in Delaware.
  • DPR supplies the Security Codes to all authorized purchasers in Delaware. When placing orders, purchasers must provide their Security Code to the vendor.
  • Before filling orders, registered vendors must verify that authorized purchasers placed the orders. The Provider Verification System (PVS) assists vendors with the required confirmation.
  • When applying to DPR for registration, vendors must designate at least two representatives. Only these vendor representatives are allowed to access the PVS. After registering the vendor and its representatives, DPR sends the vendor representatives instructions for using the PVS.   Before filling an order, the vendor representative queries the PVS using the purchaser’s Security Code and other information from the order.

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. 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 for Registered Vendor and the fee in DELPROS, you must submit:

  • A copy of a valid State of Delaware business license issued by the Division of Revenue.
  • A Registration of Vendor Representative form if you are a Printers or Distributors.
    • Proof of current comprehensive general liability insurance.
    • Documentation regarding any criminal history, pending criminal charges, or registration denial that you may have. You are asked about these disclosure questions in the online application.
