  • The pharmacist must report to the board without undue delay, but within one (1) business day in the event of a confirmed significant drug loss or any loss related to suspected drug theft of a controlled substance.  

Per OAR 855-041-1030, a drug outlet has notification requirements:

  • The outlet shall notify the board in the event of a significant drug loss or violation related to drug theft within one (1) business day.
  • At the time a Report of Theft or Loss of Controlled Substances (DEA Form 106) sent to the Drug Enforcement Administration, a copy shall be provided to the board.
For Controlled Substance drug loss reporting, the board expects an initial email notification as well as a follow-up/final notification, once the situation is resolved. Resolved means that an internal investigation has been completed and all pertinent details of the drug loss have been identified.
