To register, sites must fill out a designated form and provide the following information:
(1) The legal name and form of organization registered with the Oklahoma Secretary of State, as well as the name under which it will be doing business in the State of Oklahoma.
(2) The name, address, telephone number, and email address for the administrator of the program and a secondary entity contact, together with:
- A signed, notarized statement attesting that the applicant accepts full responsibility for ensuring that the program operates in compliance with the provisions of all federal and state laws and regulations;
- The address and telephone number for each program site, including both fixed locations with permanent structures and venues at which services may be provided by a mobile unit;
- The scheduled hours of operations for each program site; and
- A copy of the program's most current version of harm-reduction service policies and procedures, including but not limited to, clear and concise procedures for the safe and secure disposal of sharps waste and any biomedical waste generated by services provided by the program.
Harm Reduction Sites must register with the Oklahoma State Department of Health annually and be in compliance with quarterly reporting for registration to be renewed.
