Drugs, Devices & Cosmetics

Division of Drugs, Devices and Cosmetics

The Division of Drugs, Devices and Cosmetics safeguards the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the state of Florida from injury due to the use of adulterated, contaminated, misbranded drugs, drug ingredients and cosmetics by administering the provisions of the Florida Drug and Cosmetic Act (Chapter 499, F.S.). The Program carries out its responsibilities through three bureaus: Compliance & Enforcement, Licensing and Legal.

The Division of Drugs, Devices and Cosmetics has initiated rulemaking to change language in Rule 61N-1.015 F.A.C. to remove references to fingerprint cards and replace with language requiring Livescan vendor submissions. The Division will no longer accept fingerprint cards as required under the following applications:

  • Prescription Drug Wholesale Distributor
  • Prescription Drug Wholesale Distributor- Broker Only
  • Out-of-State Prescription Drug Wholesale Distributor
  • Certified Designated Representatives
  • Personal Information Statements
  • Diethyl Ether

All submissions must be submitted by a livescan vendor by providing the Division’s ORI number to the livescan vendor. The Division’s ORI number is: FL 924780Z.

You may still submit your hard card fingerprints with the Division’s ORI number to FLDBPR, Florida Fingerprint Program, Print Inc. 100 Salem Court, Tallahassee, Florida 32301. Please do not mail payment to this office. Payment must be made in advance by registering at https://pearson.ibtfingerprint.com
