A facility is required to have a Delaware controlled substances registration (CSR) when it will store controlled substances in Delaware or dispense/distribute controlled substances to, in or out of Delaware. These facilities include pharmacies, hospital/clinic pharmacies, provider pharmacies, distributors, manufacturers, and researcher/laboratory facilities.
- Pharmacies, hospital/clinic pharmacies, provider pharmacies, distributors, and manufacturers must hold a Delaware professional license issued by the Board of Pharmacy, also referred to as a pre-requisite license, before a CSR application will be processed.
- You must hold an active Delaware professional license before your application for controlled substance registration (CSR) can be submitted.
- If you do not already hold a Delaware professional license, apply for a professional license in DELPROS online portal.
- Clinics, research facilities and laboratories do NOT need a professional license, or pre-requisite license, from the Board of Pharmacy but do need a controlled substance registration.
- If controlled substances will be dispensed, you must report ALL controlled substances that you dispense to the Delaware Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). For instructions on registering for the PMP, see the Uploader Guide.
- In-state facilities where controlled substances are stored for patient administration will be inspected before the CSR is issued.
- If the facility relocates or its ownership changes after a CSR is issued, you must reapply for a new registration.
