DEA Announces Drastic Changes to its Registration Renewal Process

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recently announced significant changes to its registration renewal process. Effective Jan. 1, 2017, the DEA is eliminating the informal grace period that the agency has previously allowed for registrants to renew their registrations. Only one renewal notice will be sent to each registrant’s “mail to” address about 65 days prior to the expiration date. No additional renewal reminders will be provided by the DEA. The notice will also state that individuals will not be able to renew their DEA registration online following the expiration date, and failure to file a renewal application by midnight EST of the expiration date will result in the “retirement” of the registrant’s DEA number, and the original DEA registration will not be reinstated.

In addition, paper renewal applications will not be accepted the day after the expiration date. If the DEA does not receive the paper application by the day of the expiration date, mailed applications will be returned and the registrant will have to apply for a new DEA registration.
