Important Update on License Renewals for Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, and Pharmacies

February 18, 2022

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) hopes to open the license renewal process by the end of next week (February 25th).  The announcement was made at the 2022 Illinois Pharmacy Legislative Week law review presentation on February 16th by IDFPR Acting Secretary, Mario Treto Jr.  The delay in renewals is related to the state implementing a modernized licensing website and Governor Pritzker’s announcement indicating that fees for license renewal would be waived. The renewal extension dates are indicated below.

Renewal Extension Dates

  • Pharmacy Technicians:    5/31/2022
  • Pharmacists:                        7/31/2022
  • Pharmacy Licenses:          5/31/2022
License fees will be waived for the 2022 renewal for pharmacists and for the 2023 renewal for technicians. These dates were chosen so that the fees are waived in the next fiscal year for the state. Pharmacies will not receive a fee waiver.
