Helpful Tips:

  • The “License required (In-state)” indicates the specific license required under the product category listing and the name of the license will be displayed. If a license is not required, “No License Required” will be displayed.
  • The “Req. for suppliers (Out-of-state)” indicates the licensure required for suppliers located out-of-state. If “Yes” appears, a license is required. If “No” appears, licensure is not required for out-of-state suppliers.
  • The Licensing Agency listed is the entity issuing the license. You can click the link to view the state agency’s website.
  • If “Yes” appears in “Verify Online”, you can click the link to go to the website to verify information.
  • Req. for Pharmacies (In-state)” indicates any licensure required for pharmacies. If “No” appears, a license is not required for pharmacies. Note: Out-of-state pharmacies must hold a non-resident pharmacy permit. If “Yes” appears, the pharmacy providing products and services in the selected state must obtain the license regardless of if the pharmacy is licensed as in-state or non-resident pharmacy.
  • If “Notes” appear, it is imperative you read the note associated with the license as specific exemptions or other important information for license is indicated.  

Note: In the case of home-based businesses, the supplier is responsible for ensuring they are compliant with local ordinances regarding a home-based business.
