Medical Gas Dispenser*

* In 2020, the Minnesota Legislature amended the statutes to rename “medical gas distributors” as “medical gas dispensers.” The Board will be amending its rules accordingly.

License Renewal

Medical Gas Dispenser Renewals are due November 1 of each year, and licenses expire December 1 of each year. Currently the renewal process is not an online process. All renewal applications must be completed and mailed or delivered to the Board. The address can be found on the application and website. Please note, a facility with a medical gas dispenser registration can only dispense legend medical gas to patients by prescription. Also note that a facility that holds a medical gas manufacturer or wholesaler license can dispense medical gases to patients without needing a separate medical gas dispenser registration.

The renewal fee is $260.00 if submitted before the expiration date of the current registration. Renewal fee plus late fee is $390.00, if the current registration has expired.

Medical Gas Dispenser Renewal Form

Download and complete the renewal form. Submit the application with the required documents and payment. Allow the Board 10 business days to process a properly completed renewal application after it has been received. If an application is missing documents, signatures or other requirements, the applicant will be contacted for additional information or documentation, and processing will be delayed. Once processed, allow 7-10 business days for a new license card to arrive at the facility via USPS.

At any time in the process, the applicant can verify their license status through the Board’s verification portal. The verification link can be found on our home page.

Mail the completed renewal form, documents, and payment to: 

Minnesota Board of Pharmacy
335 Randolph Ave, Suite 230

Checks should be payable to the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy. All payments are non-refundable.


Application for a New Medical Gas Dispenser Registration

Change of Ownership Form
A change of ownership requires a change of ownership application to be submitted to the Board 30 days prior to the effective date of the change. A new registration is not issued for the change and there is not a fee.
The following are some examples of ownership changes that require you to report a change of ownership.
  • Sale to another individual;
  • Incorporation (from sole owner to corporation, from partnership to corporation);
  • Major stock change (if 20% or more of the stock changes hands since the incorporation);
  • Sole owner to partnership;
  • The addition of one or more partners to a partnership; or
  • One partner buying out the other partner.
License Closure Form
  • Submit this form 14 days prior the date the facility closes or surrenders their registration to conduct business in the state of Minnesota.
Facility Name Change Form
  • Name changes should be submitted 30 days prior to the change for facilities located in Minnesota. Non-resident facilities must report the name change of the facility on the notification form and include the license/registration issued by the home state regulatory agency showing the new facility name.
Relocation Form
  • A relocation application and required documents must be submitted to the Board 30 days prior the relocation date for facilities located in Minnesota. Non-resident facilities must apply for a new registration after your home state regulatory agency has issued a license/registration, showing the new address, and an inspection has been conducted of the new location. A new registration is issued upon approval, and a fee is charged.
