Register with PDMP before New or Renewed CDS Registration

Beginning October 1, 2016, practitioners must be registered with the PDMP prior to obtaining a new or renewal Maryland State Controlled Dangerous Substances (CDS) Registration (issued by the Office of Controlled Substances Administration Рformerly the Division of Drug Control.)  Click here for more details.  Beginning July 1, 2018 PDMP use by CDS prescribers will be mandatory.

MedChi has prepared a useful timeline of PDMP registration, as well as PDMP query requirements for prescribing opioids and benzodiazepines.
