A. Beginning November 1, 2007 and pursuant to rules adopted by the board, each medical practitioner who is issued a license pursuant to title 32 and who possesses a registration under the federal controlled substances act must have a current controlled substances prescription monitoring program registration issued by the board. The registration is:

1. Subject to biennial renewal as specified in this article.

2. Not transferable or assignable.

3. Valid only in conjunction with a valid license issued by a professional licensing board established pursuant to title 32, chapter 7, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 25 or 29.

B. An applicant for registration pursuant to this section must submit an application as prescribed by the board.

C. The board shall assign all persons registered under this article to one of two registration renewal groups. The holder of a registration ending in an even number must renew the registration biennially on or before May 1 of the next even-numbered year. The holder of a registration ending in an odd number must renew the registration biennially on or before May 1 of the next odd-numbered year. The board shall automatically suspend the registration of any registrant who fails to renew the registration on or before May 1 of the year in which the renewal is due. The board shall vacate a suspension if the registrant submits a renewal application. A suspended registrant is prohibited from accessing information in the prescription monitoring program database tracking system.

D. A registrant shall not apply for registration renewal more than sixty days before the expiration date of the registration.

E. An applicant for registration renewal pursuant to this section must submit a renewal application prescribed by the board by rule.

F. Pursuant to a fee prescribed by the board by rule, the board may issue a replacement registration to a registrant who requests a replacement because the original was damaged or destroyed, because of a change of name or for any other good cause as prescribed by the board.
