Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Justice.

ACTION:

Final rule; correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

On September 24, 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) published in the Federal Register a final rule (72 FR 54208) designating oripavine (3-O-demethylthebaine or 6,7,8,14-tetradehydro-4,5-alpha-epoxy-6-methoxy-17-methylmorphinan-3-ol) as a basic class in schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The drug code for oripavine was inadvertently designated as 9335, a drug code which is already used to identify a schedule I controlled substance. This correction corrects that error and assigns a different drug code to oripavine.

DATES:

Effective December 10, 2007.
