Controlled Substances Reporting System (CSRS)

Enrollment and Utilization of the CSRS

The North Carolina Board of Nursing (NCBON) is providing a streamlined registration process to the NC Controlled Substances Reporting System (CSRS) through collaboration with NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS).


The NC Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) requested the North Carolina Board of Nursing to share information related to changes in Gabapentin reporting. This correspondence is being shared with you to provide you with the final version of the North Carolina Controlled Substance Reporting System (NC CSRS) Gabapentin Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document developed by NC DHHS. Per legislative Session 2023-2024, North Carolina GS 90-113.70 requires the dispensers of controlled substances to report these dispensations to the North Carolina Controlled Substances Reporting System. HB 190 Section 11.2 G.S. 90-113.73(c) included the required reporting of Gabapentin as a substance of interest for practitioners and dispensers effective March 1, 2024, and effective for veterinarians March 1, 2025.

The Gabapentin FAQ document has been designed by NC DHHS to provide clear answers to common questions arising from this change. This document and other information can be located on the NC DHHS website
