License Verification - Drugs and Medical Devices Group


What to include in a request for license verification

  • The license number of the firm.
  • 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 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.

Return of completed license verification requests

All completed license verification requests will be returned via 1st Class mail.

Overnight mail
The License Verification group can return overnight mail using only FedEx® or Lonestar Overnight. An account number must be provided unless a pre-paid return envelope is included with the request. UPS will no longer pick up packages from the physical location, so no documents can be returned via UPS.

Fax or email
We can fax or email the completed form, but most states will not accept a completed license verification without an original signature or an imprinted state seal.
