Policy: Controlled Substances (DAR)


DEA regulations and DAR policy require that Principal Investigators obtain their own Federal and State of Illinois controlled substances licenses. For a six months, DAR can provide controlled substances to Principal Investigators, who have applied for but not yet received their controlled drug licenses. While license requests are being processed, DAR is available to provide controlled substances (CS) for IACUC approved animal care and use protocols. CS provided from DAR must be used during DAR business hours, so that excess CS can be returned to DAR office for storage.  Please use the Controlled Substance Request Form to request CS. Submit this request form at least 2 business days prior to date needed. Requests are to be submitted via email

For information on controlled substance requests and licensing, view the DAR page or call the main DAR office at (217) 333-2564.
