DEA Form 222 Management
RLI is capable of handling large orders of Form 222s. We maintain an electronic record of all Form 222s received. An electronic log of all Form 222s that are executed but not received is also maintained. RLI's procedure is to void any form not filled within the 60-day statutory limit. Voided forms will be reissued prior to shipment. Product shipped within the 60-day limit may be received by RLI within a reasonable period of time after the 60 days have expired. RLI maintains an electronic log of all Form 222s either voided or canceled for any reason. Voided, canceled or returned order forms are retained in RLI's files according to 21 CFR 1305.13.
Advance Ship Notice
Customers are required to fax, email or mail a completed ASN package to the Return Center. The ASN is provided by RLI after the customer contacts RLI with a request to ship. After RLI receives the completed package, RLI will issue the customer a Return Order Number.

Physical security of the facility includes 24-hour monitored electronic security by a UL-certified security provider. The installed security system also holds a UL certification.
