Initial CSA Registration Instructions for Individuals

NEW APPLICANTS WITHOUT A DEA NUMBER:

STEP ONE

  • Submit the Controlled Substances Act Registration Application for Individuals either online or through the mail. Excluding researchers, an Iowa professional license is required before the state or federal controlled substance registration will be issued.
  • For the question regarding a federal DEA number, please enter "Pending" or simply leave blank.
  • Once your application has been processed, you will receive an email (from iowa@igovsolution.com) with your assigned CSA-Individual registration number and its expiration date.  At this point, the status of your CSA registration will be "Pending PMP".
    • INDIVIDUAL RESEARCHERS AND VETERINARIANS are not required to register to use the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). Once your initial CSAR application has been processed, your registration status will be “Current/Active” and your certificate will be mailed the following business day so that you can apply for a federal DEA registration.

STEP TWO

  • Submit your federal registration application (Form DEA-224) from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), available on the DEA's website. In section 3 ("State Licenses") of the online application process you will need to enter your state CSAR number and expiration date. The number and expiration date will be found in the email you received from iowa@igovsolution.com. Researchers and veterinarians will find their CSAR number on their certificate.

STEP THREE

  • When you receive your federal DEA number, you then must apply for a free user account with the Iowa Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP).
  • You will be required to provide both your DEA number and your NPI number during the PMP registration process.
  • Once your PMP account is approved, Board of Pharmacy administrators will update the status of your CSAR from "Pending PMP" to "Current/Active" and your CSAR certificate will be mailed to you. You may also sign up for a Board of Pharmacy online profile to download/print a copy of your CSAR certificate yourself.
