19 CSR 30-1.042 - Inventory Requirements

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

PURPOSE: This rule defines requirements for the form and maintenance of controlled substance inventories.

(1) General Requirements.
(A) Each inventory shall contain a complete and accurate record of all controlled substances on hand on the date the inventory was taken. Controlled substances shall be deemed to be on hand if they are in the possession of or under the control of the registrant, including substances returned by a customer, substances ordered by a customer but not yet invoiced, substances stored in a warehouse on behalf of the registrant and substances in the possession of employees of the registrant and intended for distribution as complimentary samples.
(B) A separate inventory shall be made by a registrant for each registered location. In the event controlled substances are in the possession or under the control of the registrant at a location for which s/he is not registered, the substances shall be included in the inventory of the registered location to which they are subject to control or to which the person possessing the substance is responsible. Each inventory for a registered location shall be kept at the registered location.
(C) A separate inventory shall be made by a registrant for each independent activity for which s/he is registered.
(D) A registrant may take an inventory either as of the opening of business or as of the close of business on the inventory date. The registrant shall indicate on the inventory records whether the inventory is taken as of the opening or as of the close of business and the date the inventory is taken.
(E) An inventory must be maintained in a permanent written, typewritten or printed form. An inventory taken by use of an oral recording device must be transcribed promptly.
(2) Initial Inventory Date.
(A) Every person required to keep records who is registered with the Department of Health after May 1, 1971 and who was not registered previously shall take an inventory of all stocks of controlled substances on hand on the date s/he first engages in the manufacture, distribution or dispensing of controlled substances.
(B) Compliance with federal initial inventory date requirements is deemed satisfactory. Duplicate inventories are not required.
(3) Annual Inventory Date. After the initial inventory is taken, the registrant shall take a new inventory of all stocks of controlled substances on hand at least once a year. The annual inventory may be taken on any date that is within one year of the previous annual inventory date.
(4) Inventory Date for Newly Controlled Substances. On the effective date of a rule by the Department of Health adding a substance to any schedule of controlled substances, which substance was not listed immediately prior to that date in any such schedule, every registrant required to keep records who is manufacturing, distributing or dispensing that substance shall take inventory of all stocks of the substance on hand. After that, this substance shall be included in each inventory made by the registrant.
(5) Inventories of Manufacturers. Each registered manufacturer shall include the following information in his/her inventory:
(A) For each controlled substance in bulk form to be used in (or capable of use in) the manufacture of the same or other controlled or noncontrolled substances in finished form, the name of the substance and the total quantity of the substance to the nearest metric unit weight consistent with unit size (except that for inventories made in 1971, avoirdupois weights may be utilized where metric weights are not readily available);
(B) For each controlled substance in the process of manufacture on the inventory date the name of the substance, the quantity of the substance in each batch, stage of manufacture, or both, identified by the batch number or other appropriate identifying number and the physical form which the substance is to take upon completion of the manufacturing process (for example, granulations, tablets, capsules or solutions), identified by the batch number or other appropriate identifying number and if possible the finished form of the substance (for example, ten milligram (10 mg) tablet or ten milligram (10 mg) concentration per fluid ounce or milliliter) and the number or volume;
(C) For each controlled substance in finished form, the name of the substance; each finished form of the substance (for example, ten milligram (10 mg) tablet or ten milligram (10 mg) concentration per fluid ounce or milliliter); the number of units or volume of each finished form in each commercial container (for example, four 100 tablet bottles or three milliliter (3 ml) vials); the number of commercial containers of each finished form (for example, four 100 tablet bottles or six three milliliter (3 ml) vials);
(D) For each controlled substance not included in subsections (5)(A)-(C) of this rule (for example, damaged, defective or impure substances awaiting disposal, substances held for quality control purposes or substances maintained for extemporaneous compoundings), the name of the substance; the total quantity of the substance to the nearest metric unit weight or the total number of units of finished form; the reason for the substance being maintained by the registrant and whether the substance is capable of use in the manufacture of any controlled substance in finished form.
(6) Inventories of Distributors. Each registered distributor shall include in his/her inventory the same information required of manufacturers in subsections (5)(C) and (D) of this rule.
(7) Inventories of Dispensers and Researchers. Each person registered to dispense or conduct research with controlled substances and required to keep records shall include in his/her inventory the same information required of manufacturers in subsections (5)(C) and (D) of this rule. In determining the number of units of each finished form of a controlled substance in a commercial container which has been opened, the dispenser shall do as follows:
(A) If the substance is listed in Schedule I or II, s/he shall make an exact count or measure of the contents;
(B) If the substance is listed in Schedule III, IV or V, s/he shall make an estimated count or measure of the contents, unless the container holds more than 1,000 tablets or capsules in which case s/he must make an exact count of the contents.
(8) Inventories of Importers and Exporters. Each registered importer or exporter shall include in his/her inventory the same information required of manufacturers in subsections (5)(A), (C) and (D) of this rule. Each registered importer and exporter who also is registered as a manufacturer or as a distributor shall include in his/her inventory as an importer or exporter only those stocks of controlled substances that actually are separated from his/her stocks as a manufacturer or as a distributor (for example, in-transit or in storage for shipment).
(9) Inventories for Chemical Analysts. Each analytical laboratory registered to conduct chemical analysis with controlled substances shall include in its inventory the same information required of manufacturers in subsections (5)(A), (C) and (D) of this rule as to substances which have been manufactured, imported or received by the laboratory conducting the inventory. If less than one kilogram (1 kg) of any controlled substance (other than a hallucinogenic controlled substance listed in Schedule I) or less than twenty grams (20 g) of a hallucinogenic substance listed in Schedule I (other than lysergic acid diethylamide) or less than point five gram (0.5 g) of lysergic acid diethylamide, is on hand at the time of inventory, those substances need not be included in the inventory. Laboratories of the division may process up to one hundred fifty grams (150 g) of any hallucinogenic substance in Schedule I without regard to a need for an inventory of those substances.
