19 CSR 30-1.023 - Registration Changes

Current through Register Vol. 47, No. 7, April 1, 2022

PURPOSE: This proposed rule amendment allows authorized registrants to modify their registration to allow the collection of unwanted controlled substances.

(1) Modification of Registration.
(A) Any registrant may apply to modify his/her registration to authorize the handling of controlled substances in additional schedules by submitting a request in writing to the department. No fee shall be required to be paid for the modification. The application for modification shall be handled in the same manner as an application for registration.
(B) Any registrant may request to modify his or her name or address as shown on the registration provided that such a modification does not constitute a change of ownership or location. The request shall be made in writing and no fee shall be required to be paid for the modification. The request for changes may be submitted electronically using the department's online database system. Requests submitted in paper form shall contain the registrant's signature.
(C) When the registrant's name or address as shown on the registration changes, the registrant shall notify the Department of Health and Senior Services in writing, including the registrant's signature, prior to or within thirty (30) days subsequent to the effective date of the change. No fee shall be required to be paid for the modification.
(D) Collector of Unwanted Controlled Substances. A current reg- istrant with the department may request to have their registration modified to authorize the collection of unwanted controlled substances. Requests shall be submitted in writing to the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, PO Box 570, Jefferson City, MO, 65102-0570. Requests shall provide the requesting registrant's name, address, and current Missouri Controlled Substances Registration number. Requests shall identify the method of collection such as either a collection receptacle box or mail-back return system, or both, and shall identify the exact physical address of the receptacle. Collection receptacles located in long term care facilities shall be maintained by a retail pharmacy or a hospital/clinic with an on-site pharmacy. The bureau will respond to the registrant's request in writing. Registrants authorized by the department to collect unwanted controlled substances shall comply with all requirements for record keeping and security in accordance with federal regulations. The privilege of being a collector may be terminated if the registrant's authority to collect is terminated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, a judicial order, an act by a state licens- ing board or agency, or if the collector's registration is restricted as a matter of public discipline by the department. An authorized col- lector who wishes to cease being a collector shall notify the bureau in writing of the date that collections will cease.
(2) Termination of Registration.
(A) The registration of any person shall terminate-
1. On the expiration date assigned to the registration at the time the registration was issued;
2. If and when the person dies;
3. If and when the person ceases legal existence;
4. If and when a business changes ownership, except-
A. The registration shall not terminate for thirty (30) days from the effective date of the change if the new owner applies for a registration within the thirty (30) day period and the corresponding Drug Enforcement Administration registration remains effective as provided for by the Drug Enforcement Administration;
5. If and when the person discontinues business or changes business location, except-
A. The registration shall not terminate for thirty (30) days from the effective date of the change if the person applies for a new registration or modification within the thirty (30) day period; or
6. Upon the written request of the registrant.
(B) A mid-level practitioner's registration shall be contingent upon the physician with whom he or she has entered into an agreement pursuant to Chapter 334, RSMo, having a current and valid registration. When such physician's registration expires, closes, or is no longer valid, any mid-level practitioner(s) with whom he or she has entered into an agreement shall no longer have controlled substance authority. The mid-level practitioner(s) shall cease controlled drug activities until the physician has obtained a new registration or the mid-level practitioner(s) obtain(s) another agreement with another physician pursuant to Chapter 334, RSMo. Mid-level practitioners and any physician with whom he or she has entered into an agreement pursuant to Chapter 334, RSMo, shall notify the Department of Health and Senior Services of the termination of any such agreement.
(C) Any registrant who ceases legal existence or discontinues business or professional practice shall notify the Department of Health and Senior Services of the effective date of this action and promptly return his/her registration certificate to the Department of Health and Senior Services.
(3) Transfer of Registration. No registration or any authority conferred by registration shall be assigned or otherwise transferred.
