Significant Change to DEA Registration Renewal Process:



Starting January 1, 2017, DEA will eliminate the informal grace period for registrants who failed to file a renewal application on time. The agency will now send only one renewal notice to a registrant's "mail to" address approximately 65 days prior to the expiration date, and no further reminders to renew the DEA registration will be sent.

The announcement also advises that registrants will no longer be able to renew their registration online after the expiration date, and paper renewal applications will not be accepted the day after the expiration date. Failure to file for a new application by midnight Eastern Time of the expiration date will result in the "retirement" of the registrant's DEA number and the registrant will have to apply for a completely new DEA registration. The original DEA registration will not be reinstated.

For questions or concerns regarding the above change, you must call your local DEA office.
