Verification of Supplier's DEA Registration
Contact your pharmaceutical supplier, whether it is a large
pharmaceutical company or your local hometown pharmacy, and verify that
your DEA Registration that they have on file is current and the
information is accurate. It may be a good idea to mail or fax your
supplier a copy of your current DEA Registration.
you are verifying that your supplier has the correct information on file
for your facility, you should also verify that you have your supplier's
correct DEA Registration information. This information is required on
documentation for all controlled substance’s invoices that you receive
from your supplier. This information is only required if you maintain
stock of controlled substances in your facility. If you are only
writing prescriptions, then it is not necessary for you to check and
verify your supplier's DEA Registration.
in mind that if your facility orders controlled substances from your
supplier, you are required to keep accurate records of all transactions.
You must separate all records by DEA Registration Numbers. For this
reason, it is important to keep your supplier updated on all changes in
physician personnel and DEA Registration Numbers.
