Scope

This policy applies to all University locations and units, including all University extensions, satellite locations, and off-site campus units, both domestic and international.

Policy

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
