Validating dea number
Normally we assume that the inclusion of information is not tantamount to an enticement to abuse.Personally, I think that information about the internal consistency check algorithm for a valid DEA number is legitimate, while, say, Bill Gates' social security number is not.This new first character will be in addition to the current first characters A, B, F of the DEA registration for practitioners.The G series DEA registration number will be listed in the database provided to NTIS and available on the DEA website validation query system.It may not be true for the DEA Numbers of the pharmacies, hospitals etc.There is no intelligence built around the first letter of the DEA.Skinnai (talk) , 8 August 2008 (UTC) I question the validity of the listing that was taken from here: The above page cites no sources.Below is more credible IMO: From the https:// "New DEA Number Series DEA is announcing that, effective immediately, DOD personal service contractors will be issued a new DEA registration number that begins with the letter "G".

I very quickly made the page late last night because "DEA number" is mentioned in another of the pages I've been working on (and I wanted to link it). The information is very interesting, and I'm glad to know it.
I am a Nurse Practitioner and had no idea that's how the number was generated.
Even though I could see some soccer mom recently hooked on Lortab finding the information a little too useful, I suspect it won't in reality create any harm. ARA , 7 December 2005 (UTC) The information given for determining the first letter of the DEA number is incorrect.
DEA uses an alpha character business activity code to identify various categories of registrants.
