Medical Gases Manufacturer

A medical gas manufacturer permit is required for any person that engages in the manufacture of compressed medical gases or repackages compressed medical gases from one container to another.

Application Requirements:
  • What is a "Compressed Medical Gas"? "Compressed medical gas" means any liquefied or vaporized gas that is a prescription drug, including, without limitation, prescription medical oxygen (oxygen USP), whether it is alone or in combination with other gases.

  • What is a "manufacturing"? In this context, the term includes preparing, deriving, compounding, propagating, processing, producing or fabricating any compressed medical gas.

  • What is "repackaging"? The term includes repacking or otherwise changing the container, wrapper, or labeling to further the distribution of the compressed medical gas. In this context, transferring or trans-filling compressed medical gas from one container for another is also "repackaging".

  • Other Prescription Drug Activity Prohibited. A compressed medical gas manufacturer may not manufacture or possess any prescription drug other than compressed medical gases - unless, of course, the person has other legal authorization appropriate for such activity.

  • FDA Establishment Registration. The applicant must have an FDA establishment registration number, or provide documentation supporting an exemption from FDA registration.

  • APPLICATION: Please select below to apply via the online or paper application.

  • Inspection: Passing an onsite inspection is a prerequisite to issuance of this permit, unless the applicant holds a Prescription Drug Manufacturer Permit at that address.

  • License Term: Prescription Drug Manufacturer permits are valid through the last day of the initial issuance month in the second year of licensure. Example: A permit issued on September 12, 2011 would be valid through September 30, 2013.

  • Fee: The application and permitting fee is $1,000 for a two-year permit, plus a one-time pre-permit inspection fee of $150. Make checks payable to DBPR. The inspection fee applies only to new permits, and does not apply to applicants holding a Prescription Drug Manufacturer Permit at that address.

  • Product Registration: Florida law requires that all prescription drugs manufactured in this state must be registered with the department before sale. Product registration is NOT a prerequisite to issuance of this permit.
