Controlled Substances: Advanced Security for Compliance and Confidence

Regulatory oversight shapes every dimension of controlled substances: licensing, registration, storage, security, use, inventory and controlled drug disposal. The DEA licenses Sentry to store, distribute, manage returns, recall and manage destruction of Schedule III-V controlled substances.  Sentry BioPharma Services provides the exacting care and management required to safeguard controlled substances which are brought into Sentry’s custody and care.  Sentry’s pharmaceutical import/export and drug product management expertise can address varying product and client needs, including packaging, distribution, storage, importation, exportation and destruction services for controlled drugs and materials.

Sentry’s culture of continuous improvement leads to consistent and reliable operations that support controlled substance product guardianship.  Redundant systems and extensive security measures assure clients that product safety, identity, strength, purity and quality (SISPQ) remain intact.  Sentry features which support this agenda include:

  • Auxiliary power feeds and back-up systems
  • Continuous (24/7) security monitoring
  • Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) status which allows controlled substances to be internationally shipped directly to Sentry where DEA, Customs & Border Patrol (CBP) and FDA clearances can be obtained within the security provided by Sentry’s GMP facility
  • Physical plant security
  • Redundant HVAC systems
  • Secure data and document programs

For more information about how Sentry can meet safety and regulatory demands for packaging, storage, distribution and disposal of controlled drugs, contact Sentry via email or by phone at 1-866-757-7400.
