Notice to all Controlled Substances Registration Registrants

Posted over 4 years ago by Brittany Williams-Rhoades

Notice to all Controlled Substances Registration Registrants:

Senate Bill 195 (84th Legislative Session), eliminates the requirement for a practitioner to have a Controlled Substances Registration with the state of Texas, effective Sept. 1, 2016. In order to implement this change, all active/current Controlled Substances Registrations (CSR) will automatically be renewed on Aug. 20, 2015, and will expire on Aug. 31, 2016. New certificates will not be mailed with automatic renewals. CSR's may be verified by visiting the CSR Search & Verification System.

The above change will not apply to registrations that expired on or before July 31, 2015. To renew an expired CSR, practitioners must submit a renewal application and pay the $25 renewal fee and $50 late fee. New/original registrations will continue to be accepted and processed. New registrations issued after Aug. 20, 2015 will expire Aug. 31, 2016. The completed application and $25 processing fee must be mailed to the address provided on the webpage. Fees will not be prorated. Instructions for submitting new or renewal applications can be found at CSR Licensing & Registration.

Please continue to visit this webpage for updates and additional information. If you need assistance, please visit Contact Us, select Controlled Substances Registration and complete the online form.
