Those conducting research, under an approved protocol, must apply under one of two processes:
A. Non Practitioner Application
A Non-practitioner, in the State of Indiana, is anyone that performs research and does not have a practitioner's license. A researcher is classified as a non-practitioner and can only be registered as such. A non-practitioner cannot dispense or write prescriptions with a researcher registration, but can purchase and/or administer a controlled substance. A researcher works under an approved research protocol, which specifies the exact procedures and drugs that may be used.
DOCUMENTATION NEEDED FOR THE NON-PRACTITIONER APPLICATION PROCESS:
Step 1: Complete the "Non-Practitioners" application process for the Indiana State Board of Pharmacy Controlled Substance Registration (CSR).
Step 2: Upon State approval, an Indiana Board of Pharmacy compliance officer will inspect the storage facility listed on your application.
Step 3: After you receive your approved Indiana Controlled Substance Registration (CSR), you can initiate the DEA Form 225 application process.
(NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU SELECT FORM 225 (second from the top) WHEN YOU BEGIN THE DEA APPLICATION PROCESS)
B. Practitioner Application
A practitioner means a physician, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacy, hospital, or other institution or individual licensed, registered, or otherwise permitted to distribute, dispense, conduct research with respect to, or administer a controlled substance in the course of professional practice or research in the State of Indiana.
Step 1: Complete the "Practioners" application process for the Indiana State Board of Pharmacy Controlled Substance Registration (CSR).
Step 3: After you receive your approved Indiana Controlled Substance Registration (CSR), you can initiate the DEA Form 224 application process.
