Federal regulations require that registrants notify the Field Division Office of the Administration in his area, in writing, of the theft or significant loss of any controlled substance, disposal receptacles or listed chemicals within one business day of discovery of such loss or theft. The registrant shall also complete the, and submit to the Field Division Office in his area, DEA Form 106 regarding the loss or theft (21 C.F.R. §1301.76(b) and 21 U.S.C. §830(b)(1)(C)). The DEA Form 106 can be completed via Theft/Loss Reporting Online (TLR).
In order to better track controlled substances and listed chemical products reported as lost or stolen, DEA uses of the National Drug Code (NDC) number. The NDC number identifies the manufacturer, product, dosage form, and package size. Entry of the NDC number will prompt the system to auto-populate additional fields such as the name of the product, dosage form, dosage strength, and quantity per container. If it is a listed chemical, a chemical code and name will be provided in a list to select.
