The state of Georgia currently follows federal requirements for prescription pads as set forth by the CMS. Georgia statute provides that “Effective October 1, 2011, every hard copy prescription drug order for any Schedule II controlled substance written in this state by a practitioner must be written on security paper.” In addition the state of Georgia requires the following:

  1. All approved security paper shall have the Board’s seal of approval affixed to the paper. The Board’s seal of approval, as shown below, will be 1⁄2 inch in diameter, with the text in the seal being Georgia font, with the Rx within the circle being a size of 9 pt, with the text “GEORGIA STATE BOARD OF PHARMACY” within the circle capitalized with a size of 4 pt, and the text “SEAL OF APPROVAL” underneath the Rx with a size of 3 pt and capitalized.

State Requirements

All states are required to meet the baseline standards set forth by the CMS. Several states have Prescription Monitoring Programs that require prescription pads to have specific security features.
