Controlled Substances Disposal
Transfer Documentation Procedures
All registrants transferring controlled substances must complete a Controlled Substance Disposal Form.
- Complete one form for each collection of controlled substance containers to be transferred.
- Include the DEA Registrant number on the form. Note: If you do not have a DEA Registrant number, indicate "unknown" or "abandoned" on the form instead.
- Email one copy of the completed form to DEHS at email@example.com and include the following information to facilitate the transfer:
- your name,
- phone number, and
- location (building and room number)
DEHS will contact you to schedule the transfer.
Disposal of Excess Controlled Substances in Syringes
Researchers who have excess controlled substances in syringes after a research procedure are required to collect the excess in a slurry bottle and document the contents of the slurry bottle on a Controlled Substance Disposal Form. Use the same procedure as above to initiate collection. Do not use a syringe to remove the unused contents of a vial and collect in a slurry bottle. The unused substance in a vial should be transferred using the procedure described in the previous section.
If you have questions please contact DEHS at 612-626-1604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
