Before a lab can purchase controlled substances, the Principal Investigator (PI) must have an approved Controlled Substances Use Authorization (CSUA) Number. Only those substances which have been authorized and approved on the PI's Animal Protocol or Grant may be requisitioned. Purchase Order Requisitions need to be generated by the PI through the Oracle Purchase Order System. All orders entered for controlled substances at UAB for research, teaching, or veterinary care are routed through workflow to Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) and placed with the vendor by OH&S.

If there is a vendor or controlled substance that you need, but it is not on the list, contact the OH&S Controlled Substances Program Manager (205) 934-2487.
