|Drug Enforcement Administration|
On November 30, 2016 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) notified ASCP that they accepted ASCP's recommendations to treat electronic e-kits the same as tackle-box style e-kits.
June 2016, ASCP sent a letter to Policy Section at the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), asking for clarification on the use of electronic emergency kits (e-kits). ASCP’s letter focused on the 1980 DEA-issued guidance spelling out conditions under which e-kits can be placed in long-term care facilities.
In their response to ASCP’s letter, the DEA accepted the recommendation that all e-kits, including electronic e-kits, fall under that 1980 guidance.
Dispensing out of electronic or tackle-box e-kits can only be done in emergency situations and still requires compliance with the Controlled Substances Act and DEA regulation regarding valid prescriptions.
