SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

By notice dated May 28, 2014, and published in the Federal Register on June 4, 2014, 79 FR 32316, Penick Corporation, 33 Industrial Park Road, Pennsville, New Jersey 08070, applied to be registered as an importer of certain basic classes of controlled substances. Comments and requests for hearings on applications to import narcotic raw material are not appropriate. 72 FR 3417 (January 25, 2007).

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has considered the factors in 21 U.S.C. 823, 952(a) and 958(a) and determined that the registration of Penick Corporation to import the basic classes of controlled substances is consistent with the public interest and with United States obligations under international treaties, conventions, or protocols in effect on May 1, 1971. The DEA investigated the company's maintenance of effective controls against diversion by inspecting and testing the company's physical security systems, verifying the company's compliance with state and local laws, and reviewing the company's background and history.

Therefore, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 952(a) and 958(a), and in accordance with 21 CFR 1301.34, the above-named company is granted registration as an importer of the basic classes of narcotic controlled substances listed:

Controlled substanceSchedule
Opium, raw (9600)II
Poppy Straw Concentrate (9670)II

The company plans to import the listed controlled substances to manufacture bulk controlled substance intermediates for sale to its customers.
