When controlled substances are used for research, each individual who works on the project must be aware of and adhere to the Federal and State regulations and University policies that govern their use. The Controlled Substances Tutorial will present an introduction to these regulations and policies, and an overview of the paperwork and record-keeping required for the use of controlled substances for research.

The objectives of this tutorial are to provide:

  • an understanding of the Federal and State regulations for using controlled substances for research
  • an understanding of the University of Minnesota policy for using controlled substances for research
  • a detailed description of record-keeping requirements for using controlled substances for research
  • a resource for researchers about the forms, instruction documents and other information available to help simplify compliance with the regulations and the University policy  .

It is strongly recommended that all new controlled substances users take the Controlled Substances Tutorial on the Training Hub
