DOJ/DEA RIN: 1117-AB37 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Emergency Medical Services (EMS) 

The DEA is modifying the regulations related to the registration requirements of DEA registrants to allow emergency medical services (EMS) registrants to transport controlled substances for the purpose of dispensing under certain circumstances, and provide the EMS community with specific requirements for EMS programs handling controlled substances. As a result of these modifications, the DEA would also modify the security, ordering, and recordkeeping requirements for those registrants who wish to transport controlled substances for the purpose of dispensing.
