REVISED ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING RENEWAL APPLICATIONS

Starting January 2017, DEA will no longer send its second renewal notification by mail. Instead, an electronic reminder to renew will be sent to the email address associated with the DEA registration.

At this time, DEA will otherwise retain its current policy and procedures with respect to renewal and reinstatement of registration. This policy is as follows:

  • If a renewal application is submitted in a timely manner prior to expiration, the registrant may continue operations, authorized by the registration, beyond the expiration date until final action is taken on the application.
  • DEA allows the reinstatement of an expired registration for one calendar month after the expiration date. If the registration is not renewed within that calendar month, an application for a new DEA registration will be required.
  • Regardless of whether a registration is reinstated within the calendar month after expiration, federal law prohibits the handling of controlled substances or List 1 chemicals for any period of time under an expired registration.


The 2018 fiscal year application 
for the Michigan State Loan Repayment Program (MSLRP) opens Wednesday and continues through April 30 [information at  2018 application period]. The MSLRP economically supports Health Professional Shortage Area employers to recruit and retain physicians who commit to practicing in their community. Medical student, resident or transitioning physician participants selected through the competitive application process will receive up to $200,000 in tax-free funds to repay their educational debt. If you have questions after reading the information on the MSLRP website,contact Ken Miller at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services at (517) 241- 9946.



The Michigan State Police (MSP) laboratory in Grand Rapids, Michigan, received an unknown powder from law enforcement in Kent County, Michigan, for testing and identification purposes. The MSP Forensic Science Division examined the chemical composition of the unknown substance and determined the substance matched the chemical composition of Carfentanil.

This puts Michigan residents, first responders, and public health personnel at great risk of accidental overdose and death due to the extremely potent opioid. The Michigan Intelligence Operations Center (MIOC) recommends first responders and public health officials treat unknown chemicals and substances with extreme caution. People and animals such as canine units may absorb carfentanil, fentanyl, and other opioids via skin contact, inhalation, oral exposure, or ingestion. According to the 2016 Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) warning about fentanyl, “The onset of adverse health effects, such as disorientation, coughing, sedation, respiratory distress or cardiac arrest is very rapid and profound, usually occurring within minutes of exposure.
