Controlled Substance Registration & Renewal

All practitioners who are APPLYING for a Delaware controlled substance registration (CSR) must complete a mandatory ONE-hour, two-part course pertaining to safe prescribing and distributing of controlled substances, treatment of pain, and recognizing and treating opioid use disorder.

All ACTIVE Controlled Substance Registrations upon renewal every two years are asked to attest to completing TWO hours of continuing education (CE) in the areas of controlled substance prescribing practices, treatment of chronic pain, or other topics related to prescribing controlled substances. This mandatory course qualifies as acceptable continuing education, for one-hour of CME, only once.

Already have your registration and need to renew?  These free webinars may qualify for the CE requirement.  The XYZs of Controlled Substances webinar requires the following password: suvetoxyz.

For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 3.1.3 of the Rules and Regulations.
