Purpose and Summary
The U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), establishes the regulations for the purchase and use of controlled substances (i.e.: narcotics, barbiturates, tranquilizers, etc.) for research related purposes.
This policy applies to all University locations and units, including all University extensions, satellite locations, and off-site campus units, both domestic and international.
- The Principal Investigator is required to have obtained a DEA registration certificate and will be accountable for the security and record keeping for the controlled substance while in his/her possession.
- If the purchase is for either a Schedule 1 or a Schedule 2 controlled substance, send a photocopy of the current DEA registration certificate and a completed DEA Form 222 as attachments to the Requisition. Both of these supplied documents will be sent, as an attachment to the purchase order, to the specified vendor.
- If the purchase is for either a Schedule 3, 3N, 4, or 5 (controlled substance), send a photocopy of the current DEA registration certificate as an attachment to the requisition. The photocopy will be sent, as an attachment to the purchase order, to the specified vendor.
- The vendor receiving our purchase order with these attachments is required by DEA regulations to ship the product ordered to the end user address stated on the registration certificate and/or the DEA Form 222. DEA certificate holders may need to review their current registration to ensure that the address is proper, in order for the delivery service (e.g.: UPS, Federal Express, etc.) selected by the vendor can make a direct delivery to that individual within their respective departments.
- Purchase requisitions for narcotics must contain a statement, signed by the principal investigator, that the items will be used in accordance with established policies governing animal or human subject studies.
