Controlled substance registrations (new, renewals, and changes to an existing registration) can now be done on-line

Controlled Substance Regulation

All new applications, renewal registrations, verifications, and changes to an existing registration will be completed online with the South Dakota Department of Health's registration system. Payment using the online Controlled Substance Registration system must be made using Mastercard or Visa credit and debit cards.

If you are a practitioner that does not have a federal DEA certificate to move to South Dakota and are applying for a new DEA number at a South Dakota location, you must write "pending" where it asks for the DEA registration on the state application, and you must also apply to the DEA for a new DEA number since you are not moving a number to South Dakota.

When submitting an application, please be sure to have all of your information ready, including any supporting documents needed to be uploaded, such as a copy of the updated federal DEA certificate. After the application has been submitted and the payment has been made, the Department will review the application, email the registrant if additional information is needed, approve or deny the application, or pend the application until we receive the new DEA number.

You can log in at any time to view the application status or print a registration. Controlled substance registration certificates or letters will no longer be mailed. Any controlled substance registration can also now be a primary source verified on the website.
