New UNH Policy on Use of Controlled Substances

New UNH Policy on Use of Controlled Substances

May 10, 2012

The University of New Hampshire (UNH) must comply in its research and scholarly activities with federal and state laws and regulations regarding the use of controlled substances.  These laws and regulations are promulgated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS).  Not only is compliance an institutional responsibility, it is also a matter of safety for UNH faculty, staff, and students as controlled substances can be extremely dangerous.

Accordingly, UNH recently adopted a policy on Use of Controlled Substances.  This policy and the UNH Controlled Substances Management Plan (adopted December 2010) delineate the requirements and responsibilities for the possession and use of controlled substances for authorized research and scholarly activity at UNH.

For information about UNH's controlled substances program, please contact the UNH DEA registrant, Dr. Dean Elder in the UNH Animal Resources Office (603-862-4629).
