Do I need a DEA Form 41?

No, you do not need a DEA Form 41 when you destroy your controlled substances with 123 Compliant Logistics. A DEA Form 41 is only needed when you witness the destruction yourself. When you ship your pharmaceuticals to a DEA Reverse Distributor, you are actually transferring your controlled substances (for the purpose of destruction.) 123 Compliant Logistics will provide you a Record of Transfer for your CII-V substances plus a DEA Form 222. These documents fulfill your recordkeeping requirements.

I live in Arizona. Can I drop off my box at the 123 Compliant Logistics facility?

How do I get a shipping label?

Do I need to include any paperwork in the box?

Please include copies of all inventory forms and a copy of the DEA Form 222. These copies act as a packing slip should anything happen in the shipping process (such as a shipping label being destroyed). All originals should be kept for your records.

Can I send more/less than what is listed on the Inventory Form/DEA Form 222?

Any change in the pharmaceuticals being sent must be submitted for approval in writing to 123 Compliant Logistics (via email or fax) with updated inventory forms. For CIIs, any amount less than what is listed on the DEA Form 222 may be indicated on the “packages shipped” field on the right side of the form.

What is an NDC and where do I find it?

NDC stands for “National Drug Code”. Every manufactured pharmaceutical approved by the FDA will have a National Drug Code. This is a 10 or 11 digit number which is divided into 3 sections (55555-4444-22) and is specific to the drug manufacturer, drug, strength and package size. This number is usually found on the label of the drug. In compounded pharmaceuticals, the NDC of the raw chemical used to create the compound should be used. Some pharmaceuticals do not display their NDC. If you are unable to find the NDC, 123 Compliant Logistics can look up the NDC for you or assign a “generic” or pseudo NDC to your pharmaceutical.

How do I know the DEA schedule of a pharmaceutical?

Manufactured controlled substances are now required to display their DEA schedule on the label. The label should have the letter “C” and a roman numeral (I, II, III, IV, V). If the pharmaceutical is non-controlled but still requires a prescription, the bottle will simply say “Rx Only”. 123 Compliant Logistics can also help in finding the DEA schedule of a particular pharmaceutical.
