Download as PDF pwalker on PRODPC60 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 196 / Wednesday, October 11, 2006 / Notices There is, however, substantial reason to question the validity of the customer information Respondent provided to DEA. In DEA’s experience, many of the firms listed as potential customers are of large enough size that they are able to purchase List I chemical products either directly from manufacturers or from large wholesalers. See John Vanags, 71 FR 39365, 39366 (2006). Indeed, it seems unlikely that Respondent could offer prices that are competitive with those offered by the manufacturers of List I products or large wholesalers. Most significantly, the investigative file establishes that Mr. Lefkowitz represented to DEA investigators that Respondent’s customers had requested List I chemical products from his firm and that he had lost business and was forced to offer deep discounts to keep other customers. Yet all but two of the firms contacted by the DI told her that they had never discussed the purchase of List I products with Respondent. Moreover, several of the firms told the DI that they were no longer purchasing products from Respondent. That the overwhelming majority of the customers told the DI that they had never discussed purchasing List I products from Respondent (and that some of the firms no longer bought any products from it) raises a serious question as to the validity of Mr. Lefkowitz’s statements to DEA personnel. Indeed, the information uncovered by the customer verifications suggests that Respondent may have provided the customer list (which contains legitimate businesses) to induce DEA to grant it a registration, which it would then use to distribute List I products into the non-traditional market, the principle supply source of mom-and-pop methamphetamine labs. Whether this was the intent of Respondent’s officers I need not decide because DEA will not grant any application when there is reason to question the validity of the information an applicant has provided. As it is, it is indisputable that Respondent’s customers include convenience stores. Under DEA precedents, an applicant’s proposal to sell List I products into the nontraditional market weighs heavily against the granting of a registration under factor five. So too here. DEA has repeatedly denied an application when an applicant proposed to sell into the non-traditional market and the analysis of one of the other statutory factors supports the conclusion that granting the application would create an unacceptable risk of diversion. Thus, in Xtreme Enterprises, 67 FR 76195, 76197 (2002), my VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:53 Oct 10, 2006 Jkt 211001 predecessor denied an application, observing that the respondent’s ‘‘lack of criminal record, compliance with the law and willingness to upgrade her security system are far outweighed by her lack of experience with selling List I chemicals and the fact that she intends to sell ephedrine almost exclusively in the gray market.’’ More recently, I denied an application, observing that the respondent’s ‘‘lack of a criminal record and any intent to comply with the law and regulations are far outweighed by his lack of experience and the company’s intent to sell ephedrine and pseudoephedrine exclusively to the gray market.’’ Jay Enterprises, 70 FR at 24621. Accord Prachi Enterprises, 69 FR 69407, 69409 (2004). Consistent with these precedents, and considering the serious concern raised by the investigation as to Respondent’s intended customers, I conclude that granting Respondent’s application for a registration would be inconsistent with the public interest. Order Accordingly, pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(h), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b) and 0.104, I hereby order that the application of Premier Holdings, Inc., d/b/a/ Filmart, for a DEA Certificate of Registration as a distributor of List I chemicals be, and it hereby is, denied. This order is effective November 13, 2006. Dated: September 29, 2006. Michele M. Leonhart, Deputy Administrator. [FR Doc.
