Ensure Consistency with Controlled Substance Registrations

Ensure Consistency with Controlled Substance Registrations

When completing researcher applications to possess controlled substances with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and MA Department of Public Health Drug Control Program, be sure the information on each application is consistent.

When initiating the application process to use and store controlled substances, the Massachusetts controlled substance registration must be obtained prior to filing the DEA application. There are various types of registrations, so be sure to select the appropriate form based on the intended use of controlled substances by the company/individual. MCSR researcher applications require that a specific individual to be named on the registration, and the DEA application must reflect this same individual. Both regulatory agencies require updates if the individual named of the registration leaves the company.

In order to avoid potential delays during the application process, ensure the information on each application is exactly the same.
