Changes to MCSR Licenses
MCSR is now on a new licensing system. The Department of Public Health’s (DPH) Drug Control Program (DCP) is now required to synchronize the term and expiration dates of your Massachusetts Controlled Substance Registration (MCSR) with your Board issued Veterinarian license.
For Veterinarians this means the next time you renew your MCSR, it will now have a term of 1 year instead of 3 and will be synchronized with your Board issued Veterinarian license. To implement this requirement, the next time you renew your Veterinarian MCSR, it will have a
term of at least one year and expire on Febuary 28th of the following year.
Example: My current MCSR expires 3/16/2024; when renewed will expire February 28, 2025
Example: My current MCSR expires 3/16/2025; when renewed will expire February 28, 2026
Example: My current MCSR expires 3/16/2026; when renewed will expire February 28, 2027
As set forth in the Executive Office of Administration and Finance’s rate regulation, 801 CMR
4.02, the fee for MCSR registration and renewal is $150 annually. Certain practitioners have
been paying a fee of $150 for a 3-year MCSR, while others have been paying $150 annually.
Henceforth all practitioners will be paying the annual fee of $150.
