Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 145 / Friday, July 28, 2006 / Notices combination of hydrocodone, either alprazolam or diazepam (both Schedule IV controlled substances), and carisoprodol, a non-controlled substance which metabolizes into meprobamate (a Schedule IV controlled substance), which is often used by drug abusers in conjunction with narcotics. Id. at 7. The Order alleged that these physicians were ‘‘routinely prescrib[ing] 90 dosage units of hydrocodone, 90 dosage units of carisoprodol and 30 dosage unites of alprazolam at each patient visit,’’ and that ‘‘[t]hese prescriptions are generally not valid’’ because the physicians wrote them without regard to the patient’s medical history and diagnosis, and without conducting an adequate physical exam. Id. The Order further alleged that many of these prescriptions were filled by Respondent and that these prescriptions were renewed at regular intervals. Id. The Show Cause Order alleged that Dr. Suzette Cullins was routinely writing large numbers of combination prescriptions for 90 hydrocodone, 30 alprazolam, and 90 carisoprodol. See id. at 9. The Show Cause Order further alleged that on various dates chosen at random, Respondent had filled large amounts of new combination prescriptions that had been written by this physician. See id. at 10. The lowest number of new combination prescriptions written by this physician and filled by Respondent in a day was sixty-five; Respondent frequently filled more than 100 new combination prescriptions written by this physician in a day. See id. The Show Cause Order thus alleged that ‘‘[t]he sheer volume of combination prescriptions issued by Dr. Cullins should have caused [Respondent’s] pharmacists to realize that the prescriptions were not written in the course of professional practice and were therefore not valid.’’ Id. at 11. The Order further alleged that ‘‘[t]he majority of the prescriptions filled by’’ Respondent were combination prescriptions, that ‘‘[p]atients receive[d] the same prescriptions regardless of their sex, age, weight, height, or health,’’ and that ‘‘[b]ased upon the sheer volume of duplicate prescriptions from the large volume of customers written by the same group of doctors,’’ Respondent either knew or had reason to know that these prescriptions were not valid. Id. The Order thus alleged that Respondent and its pharmacists were ‘‘diverting massive amounts of controlled substances’’ in violation of 21 U.S.C. 841(a)(1) and 21 C.F.R. 1306.04. Id. On May 5, 2005, Respondent requested a hearing; the case was assigned to Administrative Law Judge VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:47 Jul 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 (ALJ) Mary Ellen Bittner. On May 25, 2005, the Government sought to stay the proceeding and moved for summary disposition. The basis for the motion was that on April 28, 2005, Respondent had entered into a consent agreement with the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy. Pursuant to the agreement, Respondent surrendered its Louisiana Controlled Dangerous Substances License. The Government thus contended that because Respondent no longer had authority under state law to engage in the distribution of controlled substances, see 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3), it was no longer entitled to hold a federal registration. The Government further contended that Respondent’s request for a hearing should be dismissed. On June 9, 2005, Respondent filed a response. Respondent advised that it did not oppose the Government’s motion. Respondent further acknowledged that it had voluntarily surrendered its state license and was thus not eligible to hold a DEA registration. On June 29, 2005, the ALJ granted the Government’s motion for summary disposition. The ALJ observed that, under longstanding agency precedent, ‘‘a registrant may not hold a DEA registration if it is without appropriate authority under the laws of the state in which it does business.’’ ALJ Dec. at 2 (citing, inter alia, Rx Network of South Florida, LLC, 69 FR 62093–01 (2004); Wingfield Drugs, Inc., 52 FR 27070 (1987)). The ALJ further noted that Respondent had admitted that it was no longer licensed in Louisiana and thus was not entitled to hold a DEA registration. Id. Because there were no material facts in dispute, the ALJ granted the Government’s motion and recommended that I revoke Respondent’s registration and deny any pending applications for renewal or modification of its registration. See id. at 2–3. Having considered the record as a whole, I hereby issue this decision and final order. I adopt in its entirety the ALJ’s opinion and recommended decision. Because the facts are straightforward and not in dispute, I conclude that there is no need to elaborate on them. As the ALJ found, Respondent is no longer authorized to distribute controlled substances under State law. Therefore, under our precedents, Respondent is not entitled to maintain its DEA registration. See, e.g., Rx Network of South Florida, 69 FR at 62095. Order Accordingly, pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42879 823(f) & 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b) and 0.104, I hereby order that DEA Certificate of Registration, No. BT5626885, issued to The Medicine Shoppe, be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending applications for renewal or modification of such registration be, and they hereby are, denied. This order is effective August 28, 2006. Dated: July 20, 2006.

Although permanently shutdown, this facility is still subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). YNPS is a deactivated pressurizedwater nuclear reactor located in northwestern Massachusetts in Franklin County, near the southern Vermont border. The YNPS plant was constructed between 1958 and 1960 and operated commercially at 185 megawatts electric (after a 1963 upgrade) until 1992. In 1992, YAEC determined that closing of the plant would be in the best economic interest of its customers. In December 1993, NRC amended the YNPS operating license to retain a ‘‘possession-only’’ status. YAEC began dismantling and decommissioning activities at that time. Transfer of the spent fuel from the Spent Fuel Pit (SFP) to the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) was completed in June 2003. With the exception of the greater than class C waste stored at the ISFSI, the reactor and all associated systems and components, including those associated with storage of spent fuel in the SFP, have been removed from the facility and disposed of offsite. In addition, the structures housing these systems and components have been demolished. Physical work associated with the decommissioning of YNPS is scheduled to be completed in 2006. By letter dated February 15, 2006, as supplemented on March 23, 2006, YAEC filed a request for NRC approval of a partial exemption from the record keeping requirements of 10 CFR 50.71(c); 10 CFR part 50, Appendix A; 10 CFR part 50, Appendix B; and 10 CFR 50.59(d)(3). 2.0 Request/Action YAEC is requesting the following exemption, for records pertaining to systems, structures, or components (SSCs) and/or activities associated with the nuclear power generating unit, Spent Fuel Pit, and associated support systems, from the retention PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requirements of: (1) 10 CFR part 50 Appendix A Criterion 1 which requires certain records be retained ‘‘throughout the life of the unit’’; (2) 10 CFR part 50 Appendix B Criterion XVII which requires certain records be retained consistent with regulatory requirements for a duration established by the licensee; (3) 10 CFR 50.59(d)(3) which requires certain records be maintained until ‘‘termination of a license issued pursuant to’’ part 50; and (4) 10 CFR 50.71(c) which requires records retention for the period specified in the regulations or until license termination. 3.0 Discussion Most of these records are for SSCs that have been removed from Yankee and disposed of off-site. Disposal of these records will not adversely impact the ability to meet other NRC regulatory requirements for the retention of records [e.g., 10 CFR 50.54(a), (p), (q), and (bb); 10 CFR 50.59(d); 10 CFR 50.75(g); etc.]. These regulatory requirements ensure that records from operation and decommissioning activities are maintained for safe decommissioning, spent nuclear fuel storage, completion and verification of final site survey, and license termination. Specific Exemption Is Authorized by Law 10 CFR 50.71(d)(2) allows for the granting of specific exemptions to the record retention requirements specified in the regulations. NRC regulation 10 CFR 50.71(d)(2) states, in part: * * * the retention period specified in the regulations in this part for such records shall apply unless the Commission, pursuant to § 50.12 of this part, has granted a specific exemption from the record retention requirements specified in the regulations in this part. Based on 10 CFR 50.71(d)(2), if the specific exemption requirements of 10 CFR 50.12 are satisfied, the exemption from the recordkeeping requirements of 10 CFR 50.71(c); 10 CFR part 50, Appendix A; 10 CFR part 50, Appendix B, and 10 CFR 50.59(d)(3) is authorized by law. Specific Exemption Will Not Present an Undue Risk to the Public Health and Safety With all the spent nuclear fuel transferred to the Yankee ISFSI, there is insufficient radioactive material remaining on the Yankee 10 CFR part 50 licensed site to pose any significant potential risk to the public health and safety under any credible event scenario. This provides additional assurance that the partial exemption for E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1
