To our valued customers,

Due to the regulated nature of this product, some documentation must be completed, as follows:

We require that any researcher purchasing alcohol complete and sign a Declaration of Scientific Use Form. This form permits you to purchase alcohol free of Excise Tax under Section 3 of the Excise Act. MedStore is required to ensure that sales of restricted materials are made only to qualified University or Hospital users. All orders for alcohol must bare the signature of the authorized user.

As an alternative, qualified users may delegate signing authority to one or more staff members by filling out a Delegation of Signing Authority Form.

Please note, both of these forms are valid for only twelve months from the date of issue. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to maintain valid documentation in MedStore's possession. Expired documentation will result in refusal of service.

Once these are in MedStore's posession, there are two methods by which authorized users can place an order for alcohol:

1. MedStore Pick-up: Alcohol can be purchased in-person at the MedStore counter by any qualified signatory. Delivery can be arranged at the point of sale for a small fee.

2. Faxed Orders: The Alcohol Fax Order Form enables qualified researchers to complete and sign for an alcohol order via fax, which can then be picked up at the MedStore counter or delivered. A signature will also be required upon delivery.

Please note, alcohol cannot be purchased online or over the telephone.

If you have any questions or concerns about this procedure, please contact MedStore customer service:
