The NTIS website and supporting ordering systems are undergoing a major upgrade from 8PM on September 25th through approximately October 6. During that time, much of the functionality, including subscription and product ordering, shipping, etc., will not be available. You may call NTIS at 1-800-553-6847 or (703) 605-6000 to place an order but you should expect delayed shipment. Please do NOT include credit card numbers in any email you might send NTIS.
Documents in the NTIS Technical Reports collection are the results of federally funded research. They are directly submitted to or collected by NTIS from Federal agencies for permanent accessibility to industry, academia and the public.  Before purchasing from NTIS, you may want to check for free access from (1) the issuing organization's website; (2) the U.S. Government Printing Office's Federal Digital System website http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys; (3) the federal government Internet portal USA.gov; or (4) a web search conducted using a commercial search engine such as http://www.google.com.

DEA Active Controlled Substances Act (CSA) Registrants Database

NTIS is the only authorized official distributor of the DEA CSA database on the Web.

The CSA Database is now available as a Weekly Subscription.

The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) Registrants Database consists of records of more than one million individuals registered under the Act, including registrants doing business under their individual names rather than a business name.

Registration under the Act enables physicians, related practitioners, other established health organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and others to prescribe and handle controlled substances.

The database is used to credential practitioners as well as to certify a practitioner s CSA status and is extremely useful to HMOs, clinics, health insurance, pharmaceutical, and medical services firms, and others who must verify that a practitioner is registered to handle controlled substances.
