Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Department of Justice.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

DEA is amending Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to update and consolidate existing mailing addresses. Mailing addresses are being removed from the individual sections in which they currently appear and are being consolidated into one table in a new part 1321. DEA is making this change to the CFR to ensure registrants have the most current and accurate information, reduce administrative costs, and facilitate future address changes. A statement directing persons to the Table of DEA Mailing Addresses within the CFR is being provided in place of specific mailing addresses.

DATES:

Effective Date: This rule is effective March 9, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

DEA's Legal Authority

DEA implements the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, often referred to as the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and Controlled Substances Import and Export Act (21 U.S.C. 801-971), as amended. DEA publishes the implementing regulations for these statutes in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), parts 1300 to end. These regulations are designed to ensure that there is a sufficient supply of controlled substances for legitimate medical purposes and to deter the diversion of controlled substances to illegal purposes.

Controlled substances are drugs and other substances that have a potential for abuse and psychological and physical dependence; these include substances classified as opioids, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids, and drugs that are immediate precursors of these classes of substances. The CSA mandates that DEA establish a closed system of control for manufacturing, distributing, and dispensing controlled substances. Any person who manufactures, distributes, dispenses, imports, exports, or conducts research or chemical analysis with controlled substances must register with DEA (unless exempt) and comply with the applicable requirements for the activity.

The CSA, as amended, also requires DEA to regulate the manufacture, distribution, importation, and exportation of chemicals that may be used to manufacture controlled substances. Listed chemicals that are classified as List I chemicals are important to the manufacture of controlled substances. Those classified as List II chemicals may be used to manufacture controlled substances. Registrants are also required to provide other reports and information to DEA on an ongoing basis in compliance with a variety of statutory and regulatory obligations.

Background

Currently, 21 CFR parts 1300 to end contain numerous office names and mailing addresses to which specific forms and other information are to be sent. However, oftentimes these mailing addresses and office names are not consistent and many are no longer accurate. DEA became aware of this internal inconsistency when it determined that, to improve agency management and efficiency, its Washington, DC, addresses would be moved to other locations. As DEA reviewed the number of addresses contained in 21 CFR, it became clear that a significant administrative burden would be involved in updating these addresses. DEA recognized that this administrative burden could potentially not be a one-time occurrence; that is, it is quite possible that DEA might move some of its mailing addresses in the future, necessitating further revisions to the CFR.

For registrants to have the most current mailing addresses to which applications, forms, and other materials are to be sent, DEA believes directing registrants and other interested persons to a single location within the CFR is the most practical way to convey current mailing address information. To address this, DEA is establishing a new part 1321 in the CFR that will contain the Table of DEA Mailing Addresses. Providing this information in the table format in the CFR allows for easy retrieval of necessary information in Start Printed Page 10672multiple formats. By consolidating this information into a table within the CFR, DEA will be able to rapidly respond should mailing addresses change due to facility relocation, special mail handling procedures, or other circumstances.

With publication of this Final Rule, all entries citing DEA mailing addresses will be removed and replaced with language directing interested persons to the Table of DEA Mailing Addresses found at 21 CFR 1321.01.

Information Affected by the Removal of Addresses

As noted previously, the current CFR contains numerous addresses specific to applications, forms, and other information to be physically mailed to DEA. Below are two tables. The first table lists the CFR section which previously contained a mailing address, the subject, and the corresponding DEA office that is responsible for that activity. The second table provides the mailing address information that will be provided in 21 CFR 1321.01.

DEA is removing address references for the two information collections specifically listed in the regulations (21 CFR 1310.06(d) and 1313.24(e)), as the information was provided inconsistently. Persons are encouraged to submit comments regarding information collections as each specific collection is renewed. Notices regarding such renewal are published in the Federal Register, seek public comment, and provide the address to be used when submitting those comments.

Technical Corrections

While preparing this rule, DEA became aware of inaccurate section citations in 21 CFR 1310.05(d) and 21 CFR 1310.06(h)(5). Those paragraphs referenced 21 CFR 1310.01(f)(1)(iv) and 21 CFR 1310.01(f)(1)(v) which had previously been redesignated as 21 CFR 1300.02(b)(28)(i)(D) and 21 CFR 1300.02(b)(28)(i)(E), respectively. DEA is correcting these inaccurate citations in this rule.

Regulatory Certifications

Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553)

An agency may find good cause to exempt a rule from certain provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553), including notice of proposed rulemaking and the opportunity for public comment, if it is determined to be unnecessary, impracticable, or contrary to the public interest. This rule updates existing mailing addresses and consolidates those addresses into a new part in 21 CFR. By consolidating this information, DEA will be able to rapidly respond should mailing addresses change due to facility relocation, special mail handling procedures, or other circumstances. As this Final Rule only updates existing mailing addresses and consolidates those addresses (some of which were outdated), DEA finds it unnecessary and impracticable to permit public notice and comment. Therefore, DEA is publishing this document as a final rule. Further, as the changes of address have occurred and it is administratively burdensome for DEA to continue to support previous mailing addresses, and since a delay in the effective date of this regulation could impede the timely receipt of required reports by DEA from the regulated industry and cause further confusion, DEA finds there is good cause to make this final rule effective immediately upon publication.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Deputy Administrator hereby certifies that this rulemaking has been drafted in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), has reviewed this regulation, and by approving it certifies that this regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This final rule merely changes DEA mailing addresses, permitting industry to report to DEA in a timely manner.

Executive Order 12866

The Deputy Administrator further certifies that this rulemaking has been drafted in accordance with the principles in Executive Order 12866 Section 1(b). DEA has determined that this is not a significant regulatory action. Therefore, this action has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.

Executive Order 12988

This regulation meets the applicable standards set forth in Sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 Civil Justice Reform.

Executive Order 13132

This rulemaking does not preempt or modify any provision of state law; nor does it impose enforcement responsibilities on any state; nor does it diminish the power of any state to enforce its own laws. Accordingly, this rulemaking does not have federalism implications warranting the application of Executive Order 13132.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

This rule will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $120,000,000 or more (adjusted for inflation) in any one year, and will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Congressional Review Act

This rule is not a major rule as defined by Section 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Congressional Review Act). This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and export markets.
