Licensure Office

In compliance with the Governor's order to extend the expiration date for all State licenses, the the renewal deadline for alcoholic beverage licenses has been postponed from its original deadline of March 31, 2020. Licensees will be notified when a new deadline is established. Licensees should continue to display the 2019 license.

The Licensure Office processes alcoholic beverage license applications (new, transfer, one-day, renewals) in compliance with Article 2B of Maryland state law and the Rules and Regulations of the Board of License Commissioners (Board).
Licensure staff assist applicants throughout the application process from initial inquiry through license issuance and beyond, and provides staff support to the Board.
The Licensure Office is also involved in issuing violation letters, collecting fines, and scheduling show-cause hearings before the Board.
