Where can I find a list of registered vendors of tamper-resistant prescription forms?

Can prescribers use their computer software (EMR/Electronic Medical Record Software) to generate prescriptions? Do I need to use special paper?
Answer: Yes. Prescribers can generate prescriptions via computer/EMR software. Prescribers must use laser paper that is compliant with the tamper-resistant guidelines. You must obtain the paper from a registered vendor.
Does the laser paper for computer-generated prescriptions need to have the prescriber name and information pre-printed on the paper?
Answer: No. A prescriber can purchase blank stock prescription laser paper from a registered vendor.
Are all prescriptions required to have serial numbers?
Answer: Yes. All prescriptions must have serial numbers. Either a registered vendor or the EMR/Electronic Medical Record/computer software can print the serial numbers on the forms. Prescribers must verify whether the laser paper they are purchasing from a vendor has pre-printed serial numbers, based on the prescriber’s needs.

What happened to Authorized Institutional Providers (AIPS)? Is my AIP code still valid?
Answer: The AIP license type was made obsolete when the Division transitioned to DELPROS. AIP codes are no longer valid. If your provider, office, or institution delegates the task of ordering State-approved tamper-resistant prescription pads, you must work with one or more of your licensed providers with prescriptive authority to obtain their PVS Security Code.
