5 Validation of a DEA Registration Number  Check the second letter with the first initial of the registrants last name  Add the first, third, and fifth digits  Add the sum of the second, fourth, and sixth digits times two to the first sum  Determine whether the right-most digit of the sum corresponds with the ninth check digit

12 Rx (order) or piece of paper?  An order purporting to be an Rx issued not in the usual course of professional treatment is not a Rx and the person knowingly filling such a purported Rx, as well as the person issuing it, will be subject to penalties provided for violations of the law

13 C-III, C-IV, & C-V Rx  Issued by written, oral, or fax.  All information required—written and faxed must have prescriber’s signature  Oral all information must be promptly reduced to writing  C-III and C-IV may be refilled 5 times within 6 months if authorized  C-III, C-IV, & C-V may be partially filled, however, not for more than originally ordered and not more than 6 months
