The registrant should complete a Drug Incident Report (DIR) form and fax it to the Drug Control Program (DCP). The DIR form can be found in the link below or by visiting the DCP website.

To report any drug discrepancy, kindly fill out the DIR form completely and fax it to the DCP at (617) 753-8083 within 24 hours of discovery.

The submission of the DIR form will satisfy DCP's requirements for both a telephonic and written report (the latter is currently required within seven days of discovery). However, the registrant should submit subsequent relevant information, if discovered.

Reporting requirements may be different for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Therefore, DCP recommends that registrants contact DEA's Office of Diversion Control in Boston at (617) 557-2191 for federal reporting requirements.

When a DIR is received by DCP it is assigned an Intake number. The registrant will be provided with the Intake number to use as a reference and as validation that the DIR was actually received by DCP.
