Naval medical facilities dispensing pharma-
ceuticals range from large medical centers to sup-
port stations aboard the ships of the fleet and
ashore. The custodial responsibility of controlled
substances is vested in the commanding officer.
An officer of the Medical Department or, in such
an officers absence, a commissioned officer
designated by the commanding officer shall keep
all unissued controlled substances in a separate
locked compartment. Controlled substances in-
clude tranquilizers, alcoholic beverages, alcohol,
hypnotics, excitants, and narcotics that require
special custodial care. Medicinal are designated
controlled substances by the symbol Q or R
in the notes column of the Federal Supply Catalog
or by the force medical officer.
The commanding officer shall appoint a
commissioned officer as the bulk custodian. This
appointment shall be in writing. This officer shall
be responsible for, and maintain custody of, all
bulk controlled substances.
Access to controlled medicinal is limited to
the bulk custodian and the senior Medical Depart-
ment representative (SMDR). Only individuals
whose official duties require access to such spaces
will be provided the safe combinations.
The bulk custodian and the SMDR are respon-
sible for the receipt and custody of controlled
substances. Each unit must maintain a detailed
record of the receipt, transfer, survey, dispens-
ing, and expenditure of controlled substances in
accordance with MANMED, chapter 21.
Monthly, or more frequently if necessary, the
Controlled Substances Inventory Board will con-
duct an unannounced inventory of controlled
substances. The commanding officer shall appoint
three members to this board; at least two of these
members will be commissioned officers and the
third an E-7 or above. The officer having
custodial responsibility shall not be appointed to
