DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Drug Enforcement Administration [DEA No. 129P] Proposed 1995 Aggregate Production Quota for a Schedule II Controlled Substance AGENCY: Drug Enforcement Administration. ACTION: Notice of a proposed 1995 aggregate production quota. + ------------------------------------------------------------ SUMMARY: This notice proposes a 1995 aggregate production quota for hydrocodone (for conversion), a controlled substance in Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). DATES: Comments or objections must be received on or before March 15, 1995. ADDRESSES: Send comments or objections to the Administrator, Drug Enforcement Administration, Washington, DC 20537, Attn: DEA Federal Register Representative/CCR. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard McClain, Jr., Chief, Drug & Chemical Evaluation Section, Drug Enforcement Administration, Washington, DC 20537, Telephone: (202) 307-7183. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney General establish aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in Schedules I and II each year. This responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA pursuant to Section 0.100 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Administrator, in turn, has redelegated this function to the Deputy Administrator pursuant to 59 FR 23637 (May 6, 1994). A company submitted an application for a manufacturing quota for hydrocodone (for conversion) a Schedule II controlled substance. Based on the review of this application and other information available to the DEA, the Deputy Administrator of the DEA, under the authority vested in the Attorney General by Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (21 U.S.C. 826), delegated to the Administrator by Section 0.100 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and redelegated to the Deputy Administrator pursuant to 59 FR 23637 (May 6, 1994), hereby proposes that the 1995 aggregate production quota for the following controlled substance, expressed in grams of anhydrous base, be established as follows: --------------------------------------------------------------+--------------- | Proposed | 1995 Basic class | aggregate | production | quota | (grams) --------------------------------------------------------------+--------------- | Hydrocodone (for conversion)................................. | 2,200,000 --------------------------------------------------------------+--------------- All interested persons are invited to submit comments or objections, in writing, regarding this proposal. If a person believes that one or more of these issues warrant a hearing, the individual should so state and summarize the reasons for this belief. In the event that comments or objections to this proposal raise one or more issues which the Administrator finds warrant a hearing, the Administrator shall order a public hearing by notice in the Federal Register, summarizing the issues to be heard and setting the time for the hearing. The Office of Management and Budget has determined that notices of aggregate production quotas are not subject to centralized review under Executive Order 12866. This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in the Executive Order 12612 and it has been determined that this matter does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment. The Deputy Administrator hereby certifies that this action will have no significant impact upon small entities within the meaning of and intent of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C., 601, et seq. The establishment of annual aggregate production quotas for Schedules I and II controlled substances is mandated by law and by international treaty obligations. While aggregate production quotas are of primary importance to large manufacturers, their impact upon small entities is neither negative nor beneficial. Accordingly, the Deputy Administrator has determined that this action does not require a regulatory flexibility analysis. Dated: February 6, 1995. Stephen H. Green, Deputy Administrator.
