The National Forensic Laboratory Information System (NFLIS) is a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) program that systematically collects results of forensic analyses, and other related information, from local, regional, and national entities. The program consists of three components (NFLIS-Drug, NFLIS-Tox, and NFLIS-MEC) that complement each other to provide a holistic picture of the drugs analyzed by the U.S. forensic community.

Is your laboratory interested in participating in NFLIS? If so, contact DEA at DEANFLIS@rti.org or review our FAQs document to determine your entity’s eligibility and next steps for becoming a NFLIS participant.

NFLIS began in September 1997 as a single data collection effort of drug chemistry analysis results from local, State, and Federal forensic laboratories (now called NFLIS-Drug). These laboratories analyze substances secured in law enforcement operations across the country. NFLIS-Drug offers a valuable resource for monitoring illegal drug abuse and trafficking, including the diversion of legally manufactured pharmaceutical drugs into illegal markets. NFLIS-Drug data are used to support drug regulatory and scheduling efforts and to inform drug policy and drug enforcement initiatives nationally and in local communities.

Since its inception, NFLIS-Drug has become an operational information system that includes data from forensic laboratories that conduct analyses of about 98 percent of the Nation’s approximate 1.5 million annual drug cases. As of February 2019, NFLIS-Drug includes 50 State systems and 104 local or municipal laboratories/laboratory systems, representing a total of 283 individual laboratories. An example of some of the data NFLIS is able to use and release for publication on the NFLIS website is the recent publication, NFLIS-Drug Special Release Maps,highlighting fentanyl and selected fentanyl-related substances reported to NFLIS-Drug in 2016 and 2017.

 Recently, DEA expanded the NFLIS program to include (1) public and private toxicology laboratory (NFLIS-Tox) data regarding postmortem and antemortem toxicological testing and (2) medical examiner and coroner office (NFLIS-MEC) data regarding deaths in which drugs were identified. These two continuous data collection programs complement NFLIS-Drug and further support the DEA’s drug regulatory and scheduling efforts. NFLIS recently reported findings from the 2017 Toxicology Laboratory Survey and 2017 Medical Examiner and Coroner Survey in support of starting the NFLIS-Tox and NFLIS-MEC programs. If your laboratory would like to participate in this endeavor, review DEA’s FAQs document to determine your entity’s eligibility to participate in NFLIS and to review other information about each NFLIS component and the next steps for participation. You may also contact DEA at DEANFLIS@rti.org.
