New legislation has extended the CURES registration requirement deadline to July 1, 2016 (AB 679, Travis Allen). Governor Brown announced on October 11th that he signed AB 679 into law, extending the registration deadline six months for all California-licensed pharmacists and all California-licensed prescribers who also possess a Drug Enforcement Administration Controlled Substances Registration Certification. Universal adoption of CURES 2.0 will take place soon,
affording fully automated registration process for new applicants. All existing CURES users will be grandfathered into CURES 2.0 program.
