See 21 U.S.C. 971(c). The Order suspended Spirit’s proposed importation of 2,000 kilograms of Ephedrine Hydrochloride to be purchased from Emmellen Biotech Pharmaceuticals, LTD., of Mumbai, India. Order at 1. The factual basis of the Order was that Spirit, a registered importer, had identified AAA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AAA), as the customer, on the Import Declaration (DEA Form 486) that it filed. Id. at 2. DEA personnel subsequently contacted AAA and determined that the ephedrine was to be used to manufacture tablets that would be sold to Novelty, Inc. Id. at 2. The Order related that ephedrine is a list I chemical, which while having a legitimate use as a bronchodilator, is also a precursor chemical which is used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance. Id. The Order also related that DEA has found that nontraditional (or gray-market) retailers, which include such entities as gas stations, convenience stores, minimarts, and liquor stores, ‘‘purchase and sell ephedrine * * * OTC products in quantities that exceed what would be necessary to meet legitimate demand’’ at these establishments, and that the products ‘‘are often sold to persons for use in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine.’’ Id. Finally, the Order related that ‘‘AAA manufactures and Novelty distributes’’ ephedrine products which are ‘‘not widelyadvertised and are distributed to ‘nontraditional’ retail outlets * * * such as convenience stores and gas stations.’’ Id. at 3. Based on DEA’s experience with similar ephedrine products which were distributed to non-traditional retailers, I found that ‘‘the proposed importation of ephedrine may be diverted to the clandestine manufacture of controlled substances.’’ Id. The Order notified Spirit that it could request a hearing by filing a written request within thirty days of its receipt of the Order, and that if it failed to do so, it would be deemed to have waived its right to a hearing. Id. Spirit did not, PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 however, request a hearing. Nor did AAA. Instead, on July 5, 2007, Novelty filed a request for a hearing asserting that it is ‘‘a regulated person to whom an order applies’’ under 21 U.S.C. 971(c)(2). ALJ Memorandum at 1; see also Ltr. of Novelty’s Counsel (June 28, 2007), at 1. Novelty also contended that it ‘‘is directly harmed, both in its property and liberty interests,’’ and that it ‘‘has an independent due process right to a hearing under the Fifth Amendment * * * regardless of whether Spirit also requests a hearing on the order of suspension.’’ Ltr. of Novelty’s Counsel at 1. Id. Upon receipt of Novelty’s letter, the matter was assigned to Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Gail Randall, who initiated pre-hearing procedures. Shortly thereafter, the Government filed a motion to deny Novelty a hearing on various grounds including that it is a downstream distributor and thus not entitled to a hearing under the statute. See Mot. to Deny Novelty, Inc. an Adjudicatory Hearing Under 21 U.S.C. 971(c)(2) (hereinafter, Mot. to Deny). Upon review of the Government’s motion, the ALJ concluded ‘‘that the usual manner of handling an administrative hearing is not appropriate here.’’ ALJ Memorandum at 2. Noting that ‘‘[t]he entity asking for a hearing, Novelty, is not the entity addressed in the Order to Suspend Shipment, Spirit Pharmaceuticals,’’ and that the Government had objected to granting Novelty a hearing on the validity of the suspension order, the ALJ concluded that ‘‘the designation of this matter for a hearing is not clear.’’ Id. The ALJ thus transmitted the issue to me for resolution. Id. at 2–3. For the reasons set forth below, I conclude that Novelty is not ‘‘a regulated person to whom an order applies under [21 U.S.C. 971(c)(1)].’’ 21 U.S.C. 971(c)(2). Accordingly, I deny Novelty’s request for a hearing to challenge the suspension order. I further order that the proceedings currently pending before the ALJ be terminated. Discussion Under 21 U.S.C. 971(a), ‘‘[e]ach regulated person who imports * * * a listed chemical shall notify the Attorney General of the importation * * * not later than 15 days before the transaction is to take place.’’ (emphasis added).1 In 1 In subsection (b), Congress directed that the Attorney General issue regulations ‘‘for circumstances in which the requirement of subsection (a) * * * does not apply to a transaction between a regulated person and a regular customer or to an importation by a regular importer.’’ 21 U.S.C. 971(b)(1).
