Application & Renewal Process

Where to Register?

Schedules I - V

Requires both a DEA Registration and VBP Controlled Substance Registration (CSR) Certificate

Schedule VI Only

VBP Controlled Substance Registration (CSR) Certificate

Obtaining a DEA Registration and VBP Registration Certificate requires an initial scheduled on-site inspection by an auditor from the VBP and possibly DEA. The VBP auditor has requested that as many inspections be scheduled together as possible for the sake of expediency.

VBP Registration

State Controlled Substance Application – Complete prior to DEA Application

Each Principal Investigator desiring a registration for the use of Controlled Substances in research must complete a Virginia Board of Pharmacy Application for a Controlled Substance Registration Certificate. 

Request all Schedules II – VI on the same application form. The CSR application must be downloaded(see below), completed, and mailed to the VBP. Refer to the checklist located in the CS manual for guidance with assembling a complete application packet. 

The cost associated with the VBP Registration cannot be waived (~$90). Pay the initial application fee with a personal check and get reimbursed through Expense UVA. Supplier/Vendor #10867. Fee can be paid using Departmental funds, non-federal funds, or personal funds. Federal grants CANNOT be used to pay registration fees. 

 

 

DEA Registrations

Federal Controlled Substance Application – Complete after VBP CSR is obtained

Each Principal Investigator desiring a registration for the use of Controlled Substances in research must complete a DEA Application for Registration (Form 225) for Researcher. Request all Schedules II – V that were identified on the VBP Registration in the same DEA application. Applications must be completed online. Refer to the checklist located in the CS manual for guidance with assembling a complete application packet. The cost associated with the DEA Registration is waived when the UVA tax exempt number is provided in association with the Certifying Official.
