DEA Registration Suspensions / Revocations Lawyers

The registration process for controlled substances is complicated, and it can be difficult to understand what is required of a provider. The DEA has strict requirements for the registration process, and these requirements are constantly changing. A provider who does not keep up with these changes may find that their registration is denied or that they are unable to renew their registration.

In addition to the registration process, providers must also comply with the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This act establishes schedules for controlled substances, which determine how these substances can be used and prescribed. Providers who do not comply with the CSA may face civil or criminal penalties.

If you are a provider of controlled substances and you have had your application for a certificate of registration denied by the DEA, or if you have been unable to renew your existing registration, you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. At Spodek Law Group P.C., our attorneys have experience representing providers in matters involving DEA registrations and compliance with the CSA. We will work diligently to help you obtain or renew your certificate of registration so that you can continue providing care to your patients.

The DEA is a federal law enforcement agency responsible for enforcing the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The CSA regulates the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of certain drugs. The CSA gives the DEA the authority to register practitioners who are authorized to dispense controlled substances.

The DEA has strict requirements for registration and renewals. For example, a practitioner must have a valid state professional license in order to be eligible for registration with the DEA. Additionally, there are several other requirements that must be met before a practitioner can receive a DEA registration number. These include maintaining adequate security controls over controlled substances and ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to them.

If you are facing an investigation or inspection by the DEA or if your application for registration has been denied, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible. Our healthcare lawyers can help you navigate through this process and protect your interests throughout every step of your case.

The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) was enacted in 1970 and is the federal law that regulates controlled substances. The CSA establishes five schedules for controlled substances, which are based on the potential for abuse and medical use of the substance. Schedule I substances have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use, while Schedule V substances have a low potential for abuse and accepted medical uses.

The voluntary surrender of your DEA registration is an admission of guilt. You are admitting that you violated the Controlled Substances Act. The voluntary surrender is not a plea deal, and you are not pleading guilty to any criminal charges. The voluntary surrender is not an agreement with the DEA – it is a waiver of your rights.

What happens when you voluntarily surrender your DEA registration?

The first thing that happens when you voluntarily surrender your DEA registration, is that you lose your ability to prescribe controlled substances. You can no longer write prescriptions for controlled substances – even if they are for legitimate medical purposes. If you have a patient who needs pain medication, or other medications, and you have been prescribing them these medications – they will no longer be able to get them from you. This can cause serious harm to patients who need these medications. This can also cause serious financial harm to healthcare providers who depend on their ability to prescribe controlled substances for their income and livelihoods.

In addition, the voluntary surrender of your DEA registration will appear on the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB). The NPDB is a database that all hospitals check before hiring healthcare providers – and many insurance companies check before approving claims submitted by healthcare providers. The NPDB will indicate that you voluntarily surrendered your DEA registration – which could make it difficult for you to find employment in the future as a healthcare provider.

The voluntary surrender of your DEA registration is also a permanent record. It will never go away. Even if you are able to get your DEA registration back, the voluntary surrender will still be on your record. This could make it difficult for you to find employment in the future as a healthcare provider – even if you are able to get your DEA registration back.

What happens if I voluntarily surrender my DEA registration and then change my mind?

If you voluntarily surrender your DEA registration – and then change your mind – it is too late. Once you have signed the voluntary surrender form, there is no going back. You can never get your DEA registration back after voluntarily surrendering it. If you want to keep your DEA registration, do not sign the voluntary surrender form!
