New to Using Controlled Substances for Research and Teaching

If you intend to use controlled substances for research or teaching, contact your unit/department administrator to determine if there is a registrant in your building who would be willing to authorize you to use controlled substances under their registration. You may also contact DEHS at cshelp@umn.edu for help finding a registrant in your building.

If there is no registrant for your department in your building, you may apply for a registration or your department head may appoint a Unit Registrant. The appointee must apply for a research DEA registration. Please see DEA online application instructions for further guidance. When the DEA registration has been received for the building in which your lab is located, you can order controlled substances. 

It is strongly recommended that anyone in the lab using controlled substances for research complete the Controlled Substance online tutorial
