Further, the notice of application, although not required to be published at all, should have stated that ‘‘bulk manufacturers’’ of raw opium or concentrate of poppy straw may file a written request for a hearing. As explained below, since there are no domestic bulk manufacturers of narcotic raw materials registered with DEA, no registrant has a statutory or regulatory right to a hearing on the application. In response to the notice, several importers of narcotic raw materials who also hold manufacturing registrations (but not as ‘‘bulk manufacturers’’ of narcotic raw materials) requested a hearing on the application. DEA’s Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) accepted the requests for hearings and placed the case on DEA’s administrative hearing docket. This correction notifies the applicant, the public, and those importers/manufacturers that requested a hearing that DEA is denying the requests for hearing and dismissing the case on the agency’s administrative docket. Statutory and Regulatory Provisions As set forth in 21 U.S.C. 958(i), the Attorney General (by delegation, the Administrator and Deputy Administrator of DEA) 1 shall, prior to issuing an importer registration to a bulk manufacturer of a controlled substance in schedule I or II, and prior to issuing a regulation under 21 U.S.C. 952(a) authorizing the importation of such a substance, provide ‘‘manufacturers holding registrations for the bulk manufacture of the substance an opportunity for a hearing.’’ (Emphasis added.) Thus, the CSA contemplates that only ‘‘bulk manufacturers’’ shall be entitled to hearing on an application to import a schedule I or II controlled substance and, further, that only those who are registered to bulk manufacture the particular substance that the applicant seeks to import. Accordingly, if no one is registered to bulk manufacture the substance that the applicant seeks to import, no one is entitled to a hearing on that application. DEA’s registration database confirms that no person holds a registration as a bulk manufacturer of raw opium, concentrate of poppy straw, or any of the other narcotic raw materials listed in 21 U.S.C. 952(a)(1).2 Accordingly, the 1 21 U.S.C. 871(a); 28 CFR 0.100(b) and 0.104, appendix to subpart R, sec. 12. 2 When applying for registration, manufacturers are required to complete DEA Form-225, which E:\FR\FM\25JAN1.SGM Continued 25JAN1
