DOJ/DEA RIN: 1117-AB82 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Implementation of the Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act of 2014 

The Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act of 2014 (VMMA), which became law on August 1, 2014, amended the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) to address separate registration requirements for veterinarians. The VMMA allows a veterinarian to transport and dispense controlled substances in the usual course of veterinary practice at a site other than the veterinarian’s registered principal place of business or professional practice without obtaining a separate registration, subject to certain limitations. The Drug Enforcement Administration hereby amends its regulations to make them consistent with the VMMA and makes no substantive change to existing legal requirements.
