Registration: Public interest
- specific controlled substances
1.The Board shall register an applicant to dispense controlled substances included in schedules I to V, inclusive, unless it determines that the issuance of that registration would be inconsistent with the public interest. In determining the public interest, the Board shall consider the following factors:
(a)Maintenance of effective controls against diversion of controlled substances into other than legitimate medical, scientific, research or industrial channels;
(b)Compliance with state and local law;
(c)Promotion of technical advances in the art of manufacturing controlled substances and the development of new substances;
(d)Convictions of the applicant pursuant to laws of another country or federal or state laws relating to a controlled substance;
(e)Past experience of the applicant in the manufacture or distribution of controlled substances, and the existence in the applicant’s establishment of effective controls against diversion of controlled substances into other than legitimate medical, scientific research or industrial channels;
(f)Furnishing by the applicant of false or fraudulent material in an application filed pursuant to the provisions of NRS 453.011 to 453.552, inclusive;
(g)Suspension or revocation of the applicant’s federal registration to manufacture, distribute, possess, administer or dispense controlled substances as authorized by federal law; and
(h)Any other factors relevant to and consistent with the public health and safety.
2.Registration pursuant to subsection 1 entitles a registrant to dispense a substance included in schedules I or II only if it is specified in the registration.
3.A practitioner must be registered before dispensing a controlled substance or conducting research with respect to a controlled substance included in schedules II to V, inclusive. The Board need not require separate registration pursuant to the provisions of NRS 453.011 to 453.552, inclusive, for practitioners engaging in research with nonnarcotic controlled substances included in schedules II to V, inclusive, if the registrant is already registered in accordance with the provisions of NRS 453.011 to 453.552, inclusive, in another capacity. A practitioner registered in accordance with federal law to conduct research with a substance included in schedule I may conduct research with the substance in this State upon furnishing the Board evidence of the federal registration.
