Any Georgia Health Sciences University (GHSU) researcher/investigator or practitioner who uses any drug or substance controlled by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for research purposes at GHSU is responsible for compliance with all Federal and State laws, which form the basis for GHSU policies and procedures.
Reason For Policy
GHSU has established this policy, which applies to activities involving the acquisition, use, storage, and/or disposal of controlled substances used for research purposes, as well as required recordkeeping in connection with such activities.
Entities Affected By This Policy
This policy is for researchers/investigators and practitioners at GHSU who use controlled substances in research, exclusive of clinical use in humans. It applies only to researcher use, and does not consider other independent activities as defined by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that require a separate registration, such as manufacture, distribution, or chemical analysis. However, a practitioner who is performing research activities (outside of a human clinical trial) must maintain the records required of a researcher for those controlled substances used in research.
Who Should Read This Policy
All faculty, staff and students who work with controlled substances in research activities, Department Heads, Department Managers and all staff or faculty who are licensed by DEA to receive or use controlled substances in research.
