The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Registration and Program Support Section has identified countless Practitioners and Mid-Level Practitioners’ DEA Registration numbers whose Medical State Licensure and/or their Controlled Substance licensure numbers past their expiration date, which is in direct violation under Title 21 U.S.C. 8 2 3. To assist DEA’s registrant population, DEA is implementing a proactive alert email to remind registrants to renew their state authority in lieu of facing termination of their Federal DEA Registration number.
In the event DEA recognizes an expired state license, the registrant will receive an email 5 days after the expiration of the license, as a reminder to renew the license as soon as possible. If the license has not been corrected 30 days after expiration, the registrant will receive a second notification stating the registration is in jeopardy of having an Order to Show Cause terminate the registration due to non-compliance with Federal law and state compliance.
There are numerous ways to correct this issue which only takes a couple minutes. The quickest and most secure way to correct this discrepancy is to Make Changes to my DEA Registration.
