On October 30, 2019, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) amended its regulations to implement a new single sheet format for DEA Form 222, which is used by DEA registrants to purchase Schedule II controlled substances. The rule also provided for a twoyear transition period, during which the existing carbon copy triplicate 222 forms may continue to be used.
Effective October 30, 2021, the two-year transition period ends rendering all existing carbon copy triplicate 222 forms invalid. As a result, Henry Schein, Inc., and all other suppliers will no longer be authorized to accept the former obsolete triplicate 222 forms.
Only two methods of ordering Schedule II drugs will be authorized by DEA as of October 30, 2021, which includes the new Single Sheet 222 Form and CSOS (Controlled Substance Ordering System), the DEA's electronic method to purchase Schedule II controlled substances.
If you are still using carbon copy triplicate 222 Forms to purchase, now is a good time to request a supply of new Single Sheet 222 Forms from DEA so that you can continue to purchase Schedule II medications after October 30, 2021 without interruption.
When executing a Single Sheet 222 form, the purchaser must make a copy of the original DEA 222 form for its records and submit the original to Henry Schein. The copy you retain may be in paper or electronic form. Unlike the former triplicate 222 form, there are no carbon copies to retain.

If you aren't utilizing CSOS (the DEA's electronic ordering system for Schedule II controlled substances), now is the perfect time to review the benefits. Information regarding CSOS and Henry Schein, Inc. e222 program can be found by clicking here.
