NEW STATE AND FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS
FOR SELLING PSEUDOEPHEDRINE PRODUCTS!!!
n display a driver's license or other form of identification containing the person's photograph and indicating that the person is 16 years of age or older; and
n sign for the purchase.
The pharmacy must make a record of the sale including:
n the name of the person making the purchase;
n the date of the purchase; and
n the item and number of grams purchased.
The pharmacy must take actions necessary to prevent a person who makes over-the-counter purchases of one or more products containing ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or norpseudoephedrine from obtaining more than two packages of those products in a single transaction; or six grams of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, norpseudoephedrine, or a combination of those substances. (Note: see more stringent federal requirements below).
In early 2006, the US Congress passed the “Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005.” This Act is similar to the Texas law, but has some provisions that are more stringent than the Texas law. Because these portions are more stringent, the provisions of the Federal Law supersede the Texas law. Some of the differences are as follows:
n Effective April 8, 2006:
§ Daily sales are limited to 3.6 Grams of the base product; and
§ Monthly sales are limited to 9 Grams of the base product.
September 30, 2006, sales restrictions will apply to all
dosage forms of the products, including liquids, liquid capsules, or liquid
must maintain a logbook, written or electronic, to record sales of products
containing ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine. The seller
must enter into the logbook the name of the product, and quantity sold. The
customer must write or enter into the logbook their name, address, date, and
time of sale. The customer must also sign the logbook. You may not sell the
product unless these requirements are met.
must be "self-certified" before selling these products and must comply with
all provisions of the CMEA relating to employee training, product placement,
photo identification of customers, sales logbooks, and other procedures
listed in the law. DEA has provided detailed training instructions for use
