SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney General establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in schedules I and II. This responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100. The Administrator, in turn, has redelegated this function to the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104. The proposed year 2008 aggregate production quotas represent those quantities of controlled substances that may be produced in the United States in 2008 to provide adequate supplies of each substance for: The estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States; lawful export requirements; and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. In determining the proposed year 2008 aggregate production quotas, the Deputy Administrator considered the following factors: Total actual 2006 and estimated 2007 and 2008 net disposals of each substance by all manufacturers; estimates of 2007 year-end inventories of each substance and of any substance manufactured from it and trends in accumulation of such inventories; product development requirements of both bulk and finished dosage form manufacturers; projected demand as indicated by procurement quota applications filed pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.12; and other pertinent information. Pursuant to 21 CFR 1303, the Deputy Administrator of the DEA will, in early 2008, adjust aggregate production quotas and individual manufacturing quotas allocated for the year based upon 2007 year-end inventory and actual 2007 disposition data supplied by quota recipients for each basic class of schedule I or II controlled substance. Therefore, under the authority vested in the Attorney General by Section 306 of the CSA of 1970 (21 U.S.C. 826), and delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100, and redelegated to the Deputy Administrator pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104, the Deputy Administrator hereby proposes that the year 2008 aggregate production quotas for the following controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, be established as follows: E:\FR\FM\24AUN1.SGM 24AUN1
