Individual Controlled Substance Registration

A Wyoming Controlled Substance Registration is required for all practitioners who prescribe controlled substances in Wyoming. A practitioner must have a valid Wyoming license and prescriptive authority from their own Board (Nursing, Medicine, etc). A practitioner must obtain a Wyoming Controlled Substance Registration to apply for a federal DEA registration. A Wyoming Controlled Substance Registration expires on June 30 and is renewed biennially (every two years).

Issuing and Dispensing Controlled Substances 

As a reminder, pursuant to Wyoming Statute 35-7-1030, controlled substances are required to be electronically prescribed. You may review the Wyoming Controlled Substances Act Rules Chapter 10: Issuing and Dispensing Prescriptions for Controlled Substances for more information.

Wyoming Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)

As a reminder, practitioners, other than veterinarians, are required to search the PDMP pursuant to Wyoming Statute 35-7-1060. Practitioners may appoint delegates to perform searches in the PDMP on their behalf. The PMP AWARxE User Guide contains useful information on setting up user accounts, delegates accounts, managing delegates, reviewing prescriptions for which you were listed as the prescriber, and more.

Dispensers (including practitioners who dispense controlled substances to patients) are required to report dispensing information into the PDMP database. This information must be entered no later than the close of business on the business day immediately following the day the controlled substance was dispensed. For more information please review the Wyoming Controlled Substances Act Rules Chapter 8: Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and the Data Submission Dispenser Guide. Zero reports must be submitted into the PMP Clearinghouse when a dispenser does not have any dispensations to report.
