**Important message regarding license expiration dates: As part of the response efforts to the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID- 19), State Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees issued Emergency Order DOH No. 20-015 extending the licensure renewal expiration date until March 31, 2021 for any health care practitioner with licensure renewal deadlines between December 31, 2020 and March 01, 2021. The license expiration date for Nonresident Sterile Compounding Pharmacies expiring February 28, 2021 is extended to March 31, 2021.
Current licenses expire at midnight, Eastern Time, on February 28, 2021
Delinquent licenses that expired on February 28, 2021 become null and void on August 29, 2021.
Failure to renew an active license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew within six months of the license becoming delinquent renders the license Null & Void without any further action by the board or the Department.
To ensure you receive your renewal notification from the Department, your current mailing address must be on file.
Nonresident Sterile Compounding permit holders are required to submit a current inspection to be included with the renewal application. The inspection must have been conducted within one year before the date of the renewal application.
