This edition of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions includes The Regulatory Plan, which appears in both the online Unified Agenda and in part II of the Federal Register that includes the Unified Agenda. The Department of Justice's Statement of Regulatory Priorities is included in the Plan.

Beginning with the fall 2007 edition, the Internet has been the basic means for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at in a format that offers users a greatly enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda database.

Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), the Department of Justice's printed agenda entries include only:

Rules that are in the Agency's regulatory flexibility agenda, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities; and any rules that the Agency has identified for periodic review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act's Agenda requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in the Unified Agenda published on the Internet. In addition, for fall editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be printed in the Federal Register, as in past years, including the Department of Justice's regulatory plan.

Final Rule Stage

347. Disposal of Controlled Substances

Legal Authority: 21 U.S.C. 821; 21 U.S.C. 822; 21 U.S.C. 823; 21 U.S.C. 827; 21 U.S.C. 828; 21 U.S.C. 871; 21 U.S.C. 958

Abstract: This action would finalize requirements governing the safe and secure disposal of controlled substances by DEA registrants and ultimate users. This final rule would implement the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010 by providing ultimate users safe and convenient options to transfer controlled substances for the purpose of disposal. The rule would reorganize and consolidate existing regulations concerning disposal (including the role of reverse distributors) and establish a comprehensive regulatory framework for the collection and destruction of controlled substances consistent with the Controlled Substances Act.
