Controlled Substances for Research Use
Anyone engaging in research with controlled substances in Illinois must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR). Different activities involving controlled substances require different registrations. Information on controlled substance use registration can be found at: http://www.idfpr.com/profs/info/contsub.asp. After receiving an IDFPR license, the individual must register with the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The required forms and detailed instructions are available on the DEA website: http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drugreg/reg_apps/index.html.
Individuals may only order/purchase controlled substances within a given class specified on their registration. To place an order with a Supplier, the department shall create a non-catalog order in the University’s BuySite system. The DEA license number and an electronic copy of the registration must be included in the external notes and attachments field of the requisition. Once the controlled substance has been received, the department shall be solely responsible for recordkeeping, inventorying, security, authorizing of other users, disposal, theft or loss, and abandonment in accordance with all applicable state and federal regulations.
