Registrants

Registrants are appointed by the Department Head and their numbers are limited by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to no more than one registrant per Department/Building.

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Registrants must: 

  • Maintain a current DEA registration whenever controlled substances are being used
  • Require any person that handles controlled substances to complete a DEA-based questionnaire
  • Keep a record of the questionnaire until that person no longer handles controlled substances
  • Authorize the purchase, use, and disposal of controlled substances
  • Maintain an accurate list of authorized users of controlled substances
  • Supervise the use of controlled substances
  • Conduct a physical inventory of controlled substances at least every two years
  • Maintain all records for at least three years
  • Report any significant volume discrepancies to University Health and Safety (UHS), University of Minnesota Police Department (UMPD), and DEA
