Editor's Note:
Since the notice below was issued, said legislation has been passed and is no longer pending. The PDMP registration requirement is currently  IN EFFECT.

The following is a courtesy copy of an email sent by the DC Board of Pharmacy


Dear Practitioner,

There is pending legislation that will require Prescribers and Pharmacists licensed in the District of Columbia to register with the District of Columbia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (DC PDMP). We would like to encourage Prescribers and Pharmacists to be proactive and register early to avoid delays.

If you are already registered with the DC PDMP, no further action is required.

District of Columbia licensed practitioners who are not currently registered with the DC PDMP can register as users via https://districtofcolumbia.pmpaware.net/login .

Click the "Create an Account" button to begin the process. For more information on registration, refer to the User Support Manual available on the DC PDMP website. After your registration is submitted, you must click the "Submit Your Registration" button to continue the process.

Licensed practitioners will need the following information to complete their PDMP registration:
• DEA Number  
• DC Health Professional License Number
• DC Controlled Substance Registration Number  
• National Provider Identifier (NPI)

If you are a medical resident or prescriber without a DEA number, please register as a "Prescriber without DEA".

Pharmacists without an Employer DEA or NPI number should register as "Non Dispensing Pharmacist".

If you have any questions or concerns about navigating the system, please contact Appriss technical support directly at 855-932-4767. Technical assistance is available 24-7.

For further information on DC PDMP laws and regulations, user guides and frequently asked questions (FAQs) please visit the DC PDMP website: https://dchealth.dc.gov/pdmp.

Please submit any program questions by email to doh.pdmp@dc.gov .

About the District of Columbia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (DC PDMP) is an electronic database used to monitor and collect data on the dispensation of prescription data for Schedule II, III, IV and V controlled substances, as well as products containing Butalbital and Cyclobenzaprine.
The DC PDMP was designed for prescribers and dispensers to use as a tool to support informed patient care and to reduce addiction and overdose trends within the District of Columbia.

There is no cost for registering or accessing the database.

PDMP Benefits:
• Comprehensive controlled substance dispensation history
• Prescribing history self-reports to identify possible forgeries
• Dashboard alerts regarding misuse, diversion or abuse of controlled substances
• Access to patients’ controlled substance history reports from other states

Best Regards,
DC PDMP Administrator
