All individual practitioners should have the responsibility to ensure the prescription is valid and meets all legal requirements. In order to prescribe controlled substances electronically, prescribers must adhere to include some of the major DEA requirements.

  • E-Prescribing applications will be certified by a DEA approved entity.
  • Secure, two-factor authentication process is required to sign prescriptions for controlled substances.
  • The accomplishment of the complaint identity-verification process.

All applications used for electronic prescriptions for controlled substances must be reviewed, tested, and determined by a third party. To know more about the requirements of 21 CFR Part 1311, please go through the link below.
