How to Find Out When a DEA Expires

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) offers DEA registration to doctors and other medical practitioners who disperse legal drugs to patients. Each registered DEA is valid for 3 years and must be renewed before the expiration date to permit a physician to continue legally dispensing prescription drugs to patients. There are a number of methods you can use to find out when your DEA expires.

Call the DEA’s State Licensing Board at 202-307-4025 to check the expiration date of your DEA. Speak to the DEA agent and provide your DEA registration number and the name and contact information of your company.

Check your registration paperwork. Your expiration date is 3 years from the date your registration was approved. Your expiration date is also listed on your DEA registration approval paperwork.

Read your renewal notice when it arrives in the mail. The DEA mails out registration renewal notices approximately 45 days before your registration’s expiration. Your renewal notice states your expiration date.
