DEA To Issue Final Rule on New/Renewal Applications to be Submitted Online

Posted 4/10/2022

On April 11, 2022, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will publish a Final Rule in the Federal Register to amend its regulations to require all new and renewal applications for DEA registration to be submitted only through a secure online portal. The Rule becomes effective 30 days after publication. A copy of an advance copy is attached.

DEA registration applications affected by this change include DEA Forms 224, 224a, 225, 225a, 363, 363a, 510, and 510a.

The Final Rule (found here) follows a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on January 7, 2021. Four comments were received to the proposal. The Rule was finalized as proposed with the exception that DEA is clarifying that Automated Clearing House (ACH) fund transfers will be accepted as payment for registrations and renewals.

The basis for this change was stated ?to modernize DEA?s approach to registration and renewal applications. The proposed changes require online submission and eliminate inefficient paper applications. Typographical errors or missing pieces of information routinely resulted in delayed or rejected applications. DEA has determined the online application process will prove more efficient and effective for both DEA and registrants.?

For those companies that submit multiple applications, DEA has determined that batch processing remains supported by existing regulations.
