Overview of this information collection:

1. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved collection.

2. Title of the Form/Collection: Application for Registration under Domestic Chemical Diversion Control Act of 1993; Renewal Application for Registration under Domestic Chemical Diversion Control Act of 1993.

3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: DEA Forms: 510, 510A. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Drug Enforcement Administration, Diversion Control Division.

4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Affected public (Primary): Business or other for-profit. Affected public (Other): None. Abstract: The DEA implements the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) which requires that every person who manufactures or distributes a list I chemical shall annually obtain a registration for that purpose. The DEA will be revising the proposed information collection instruments concerning the liability questions on the Application for Registration under Domestic Chemical Diversion Control Act of 1993; and Renewal Application for Registration under Domestic Chemical Diversion Control Act of 1993. Over the years, many applicants have answered some of the liability questions incorrectly. These changes will avoid confusion to the applicant by separating compound questions into multiple parts that will require the applicant to answer them individually.

DEA-510 (paper)60.20 hours (12 minutes)1.20
