The Drug Enforcement Administration today published a direct final rule to clarify that either the purchaser or the supplier may enter a supplier’s DEA registration number on the new single-sheet form that DEA registrants use to order schedule I and II controlled substances. DEA will accept comments on the rule through Aug. 19.

The rule takes effect Oct. 18 unless DEA receives significant adverse comments, in which case it would withdraw the rule by Sept. 20.
