If not renewed, all licenses and certificates lapsed as of February 1, 2019, although they could still be renewed with a penalty fee through February 28th! As of March 1, 2019, you can no longer "renew" your license or certificate; you must request a reinstatement, which requires Board approval. Veterinarians who have not renewed should not be providing veterinary services until their license is renewed! Payment of the penalty late fee will be required. If you would like to "reinstate" your license or certificate, please contact the Board's Licensing Administrator at 602-542-8166 or [email protected].
We suggest that you verify that any Continuing Education you intend to take to earn credit toward license/certificate renewal is "Board-approved" per the Administrative Rules. Click on the Continuing Education page for more information.
(NOTE! New law effective 4/26/18 requires a veterinarian who is authorized to dispense controlled substances AND who has a valid U.S. DEA registration number to complete a minimum of 3 hours of opioid-related, substance use disorder-related or addiction-related CE for each license renewal cycle.
The next period that all licenses/certificates expire is 12/31/2020.
