Requirement before you vacate the lab - only if NOT intending to take material with you
The PI's controlled substance inventory will need to be zero'ed out in the online controlled substance usage log
I intend to transfer regulated material to another PI.
The CS may be transferred to another authorized custodian, but approval must be obtained from the Controlled Substance Program Administrator (CSPA) before this can occur. The transfer may take up to 3 weeks, assuming the recipient of the materials is a registered user.
I do not intend to transfer regulated materials. What do I do with them?
The PI will need to use the Controlled Substance Usage Log to request disposal of their controlled substance. Pick-ups can normally be scheduled within one week.
I intend to take the regulated material with me.
Contact the CSPA to update your account and determine what would be needed to transfer the material to another institution. Timeline varies widely, so it is recommended that the PI notify the CSPA as soon as possible.
