Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 58 / Tuesday, March 26, 2013 / Notices a corresponding responsibility rests with the pharmacist who fills the prescription.’’ 21 CFR 1306.04(a). A prescription serves both as a record of the practitioner’s determination of the legitimate medical need for the drug to be dispensed, and as a record of the dispensing. The prescription also provides a record of the actual dispensing of the controlled substance to the ultimate user (the patient) and, therefore, is critical to documenting that controlled substances held by a pharmacy have been properly dispensed. The maintenance of complete and accurate prescription records is an essential part of the overall CSA regulatory scheme established by Congress. Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) Historically, where federal law required that a prescription for a controlled substance be issued in writing, that requirement could only be satisfied through the issuance of a paper prescription. Given advancements in technology and security capabilities for electronic applications, DEA amended its regulations to provide practitioners with the option of issuing electronic prescriptions for controlled substances in lieu of paper prescriptions. Efforts to develop EPCS capabilities have been underway for a number of years. DEA’s Interim Final Rule for Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances was published on March 31, 2010, at 75 FR 16236–16319, and became effective on June 1, 2010. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Update Certifying Organizations With a Certification Process Approved by DEA Pursuant to 21 CFR 1311.300(e) As noted above, the Interim Final Rule provides that, as an alternative to the audit requirements of 21 CFR 1311.300(a) through (d), an electronic prescription or pharmacy application may be verified and certified as meeting the requirements of 21 CFR Part 1311 by a certifying organization whose certification process has been approved by DEA. The preamble to the Interim Final Rule further indicated that, once a qualified certifying organization’s certification process has been approved by DEA in accordance with 21 CFR 1311.300(e), such information will be posted on DEA’s Web site. 75 FR 16243 (March 31, 2010). On January 18, 2013, DEA approved the certification processes developed by Global Sage Group, LLC, and by iBeta, LLC. iBeta’s certification process was previously approved by DEA but only with regard VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:07 Mar 25, 2013 Jkt 229001 to the certification of the application’s biometrics subsystem, including its interfaces. 77 FR 45688 (August 1, 2012).
