License Verification - Drug Manufacturers and Distributors

What to Include in a Request for License Verification

  • The license number of the firm.
  • If applicable, the license verification form from the state requesting it. 
  • The return address. Without this, the license verification will be returned to the address on the original envelope or letterhead, or to the address of the firm listed on the license verification form.
  • Complete only those parts of a license verification form that must be filled in by the applicant. Do not fill out any part of the form that is required to be completed by the agency.
  • A letter of good standing can be provided if the requesting state does not include a blank affidavit form.


Currently, there is no fee, but this may change in the future.
