Controlled Substances

A number of substances regulated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other agencies are used for research and instructional purposes at Florida Institute of Technology. These substances are known as “controlled substances,” and their possession and use are governed by regulations that require established procedures to ensure safety and prevent abuse. FIT requires all individuals working with DEA controlled substances have up-to-date DEA registrations.

The Controlled Substances Program ensures that FIT is compliant with Federal and State regulations pertaining to the: use, handling, recordkeeping, storage, security, and disposal of DEA controlled substances. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the Controlled Substances Officer listed in the contacts pane.
