19 CSR 30-1.031 - Physical Security Requirements

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

PURPOSE: This rule requires applicants and registrants to maintain security controls and procedures to prevent theft and diversion of controlled substances.

(1) All applicants and registrants shall provide effective controls and procedures to guard against theft and diversion of controlled substances. In order to determine whether a registrant has provided effective controls against diversion, the Department of Health shall use the security requirement set forth in 19 CSR 30-1.032-19 CSR 30-1.034 as standards for the physical security controls and operating procedures necessary to prevent diversion. Substantial compliance with these standards may be deemed sufficient by the Department of Health after evaluation of the overall security system and needs of the applicant or registrant.
(2) Physical security controls shall be commensurate with the schedules and quantity of controlled substances in the possession of the registrant in normal business operations. If a controlled substance is transferred to a different schedule, or a noncontrolled substance is listed on any schedule, or the quantity of controlled substances in the possession of the registrant in normal business operations significantly increases, physical security controls shall be expanded and extended accordingly.
(3) All registrants who receive or transfer substantial quantities of controlled substances in normal business operations shall employ security procedures to guard against in-transit losses.
