Per regulations, companies can ship DEA-controlled chemicals to facilities and contracts that are DEA certified.
iCM features the necessary checks and balances (processes, workflows and infrastructure) to ensure that certifications are validated for DEA items, customers, contacts and locations.
If certifications are not current, the sales order / shipment is placed on hold.
- The real-time check for certifications happens during entering the sales order. The effectivity dates (start and expiration dates) are maintained in the system at various levels as stated above.
- A report that lists the Customers with an upcoming DEA expiry date will help companies be on top of the required procedure necessary to continue selling to their customers.
- A full-approval workflow (future release) will be put in place to move a Customer from a DEA-non-approved status to DEA-approved status.
