Chapter 30. Regulations for Practitioners of the Healing Arts to Sell Controlled Substances

18VAC110-30-30. Renewal of license or permit.

A. A license or facility permit so issued shall be valid until December 31 of the year of issue. Renewal of the license shall be made on or before December 31 of each year.

B. If a practitioner fails to renew his license or facility permit to sell within the Commonwealth by the renewal date, he must pay the renewal fee plus the late fee. He may renew his license or facility permit by payment of these fees for one year from the date of expiration.

C. Failure to renew the license or facility permit to sell within one year following expiration shall cause the license or permit to lapse. The selling of controlled substances with a lapsed license or permit shall be illegal and may subject the practitioner to disciplinary action by the board. To reinstate a lapsed license or permit, a practitioner shall submit an application for reinstatement and pay the reinstatement fee, plus the reinspection fee if a reinspection is required as set forth in subsection D of this section. Reinstatement is at the discretion of the board and may be granted by the executive director on the board's behalf provided no grounds exist to deny said reinstatement.

D. Prior to reinstatement of a facility permit that has been lapsed for more than one year, a reinspection of the storage and selling area shall be conducted. A practitioner seeking reinstatement of a facility permit shall not stock drugs until approved by the board or its authorized agent.

E. The selling of controlled substances without a current, active license or facility permit is unlawful and shall constitute grounds for disciplinary action by the board.
