Theft and Loss Report
Any person or business registered to handle controlled substances in Iowa must, in case of any loss or theft of controlled substances under the registrant's control, report such loss or theft to the Board of Pharmacy Examiners. Federal regulations also require reporting to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
Through agreement between the Board and DEA, Iowa registrants must complete and submit the Report of Theft or Loss of Controlled Substances form to the Board within 14 days of discovery of the theft or loss. The Board will forward a copy of the report to the DEA.
Report forms are also available from the Board office or the DEA. Reports must be filled out completely, including identification of the registrant, the type of loss or theft, the date of the occurrence, and a detailed listing of the substances and quantities lost. Reports must be signed and dated by the registrant.
A registrant, following completion of the report, must maintain for a minimum two years a copy of the report. The original should be sent to the Board office. Board staff will forward a copy of the report to DEA.
