October 2014 Rule Change

Daily reporting to the AL PDMP begins immediately.

Daily Reporting Overview

On October 20, 2014, Rule 420-7-2-.12 was passed requiring entities and practitioners (except veterinarians) that dispense Class II-V controlled substances to report data to the controlled substance database on a daily basis. The purpose of this new rule is to assist with the identification, intervention, prevention, and education of abused, misused, and diverted controlled substances within the state of Alabama.

Daily reporting should begin immediately. The PDMP will allow a grace period to implement this change until January 1, 2015, at which time the PDMP will begin collecting non-compliance data for the regulatory boards per state law. If you are already reporting to the controlled substance database on a daily basis, please disregard this message.

Daily Reporting Requirements

Entities and practitioners that dispense Class II-V controlled substances must report data to the controlled substance database on a daily basis.

Entities and practitioners required to report daily include but are not limited to:

* Licensed pharmacies

* Licensed physicians, dentists, podiatrists, and optometrists who dispense controlled substances

Veterinary practitioners shall submit reports at least once monthly by 11:59 p.m. on the last business day of the month.
