Emergency Extension Request
Controlled substances registration for naloxone and teleprescribing

On 9/21/2018 the board requested that this emergency stage be extended until 5/9/2019.

Reason for Extension:
The emergency regulations expire on 11/7/18. They were adopted to authorize issuance of a controlled substances registration to: 1) persons who have been trained in the administration of naloxone in order to possess and dispense the drug to persons receiving training; and 2) an entity for the purpose of establishing a bona fide practitioner-patient for prescribing when treatment is provided by telemedicine in accordance with federal rules. If not extended, the Board will not be able to issue CSRs for those purposes. The Board is adopting final regulations on 9/25/18, but they cannot be effective by the 11/718 expiration date.

This stage was approved by the Governor's office on 10/3/2018.
