Changes in DEA Registrant Renewal Process

Pharmacists should be aware that as of January 1, 2017, DEA is implementing a new policy related to registrant renewals. DEA quietly changed the policy via a website posting informing registrants that as of January 1, 2017, those with an expired DEA registration will need to fully reapply, that is DEA will no longer allow a "grace period" for expired registrations.

David Mayper Executive Director PFOAGreetings,

During a busy July, staff members attended the annual conferences of AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal and McKesson.  Each of the wholesalers put their best foot forward in terms of education and vendor offerings.  PFOA utilized these events to meet with vendors, strategic business partners and most importantly, our members.  Business reviews were prepared and covered with the attending members who answered our requests.  I thank the entire staff for their efforts.
