ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice establishes the initial 2014 aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in Schedules I and II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and assessment of annual needs for the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. DATES: Effective: September 9, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ruth A.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826) requires the Attorney General to establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in Schedules I and II and for the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. 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 2014 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs represent those quantities of Schedules I and II controlled substances and the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine to be manufactured in the United States in 2014 to provide 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 include imports of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine but do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. On July 3, 2013, a notice titled, ‘‘Proposed Aggregate Production Quotas for Schedule I and II Controlled Substances and Proposed Assessment of Annual Needs for the List I Chemicals Ephedrine, Pseudoephedrine, and Phenylpropanolamine for 2014,’’ was published in the Federal Register (78 FR 40186). That notice proposed the 2014 aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in Schedules I and II and the 2014 assessment of annual needs for the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. All interested persons were invited to comment on or object to the proposed aggregate production quotas and the proposed assessment of annual needs on or before August 2, 2013. Comments Received DEA received seven comments from DEA-registered manufacturers within the published comment period on a total of 23 Schedule I and II controlled substances and one List I chemical. Commenters stated that the proposed PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55099 aggregate production quotas for (1Pentyl-1H-indol-3-yl)(2,2,3,3tetramethylcyclopropyl)methanone (UR144), [1-(5-fluoro-pentyl)-1H-indol-3yl](2,2,3,3tetramethylcyclopropyl)methanone (XLR11), N-(1-adamantyl)-1-pentyl-1Hindazole-3-carboxamide (AKB48), cathinone, amphetamine (for sale), codeine (for conversion), codeine (for sale), fentanyl, hydrocodone (for sale), hydromorphone, levomethorphan, methylphenidate, morphine (for conversion), morphine (for sale), noroxymorphone (for conversion), oripavine, oxycodone (for sale), oxymorphone (for conversion), oxymorphone (for sale), phenylacetone, tapentadol, tetrahydrocannabinol, and thebaine were insufficient to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, export requirements, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. One commenter stated that the proposed assessment of annual needs quota for phenylpropanolamine (for conversion) was insufficient to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, export requirements, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. Determination of 2014 Aggregate Production Quotas and Assessment of Annual Needs In determining the 2014 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs, the DEA has taken into consideration the above comments along with the factors set forth at 21 CFR 1303.11 and 21 CFR 1315.11, in accordance with 21 U.S.C. 826(a), and other relevant factors, including the consideration of 2013 manufacturing quotas, current 2013 sales and inventories, 2014 export requirements, industrial use, additional applications for quotas, as well as information on research and product development requirements. Based on this information, the DEA has determined that adjustments to the proposed aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs for 1-[1-(2Thienyl)cyclohexyl]piperidine, carfentanil, cathinone, dihydromorphine, dimethyltryptamine, ecgonine, hydromorphone, levomethorphan, lysergic acid diethylamide, metazocine, methamphetamine, dmethamphetamine (for conversion), methyldesorphine, noroxymorphone (for conversion), oxymorphone (for conversion), phencyclidine, phenylacetone, ephedrine (for conversion), ephedrine (for sale), E:\FR\FM\09SEN1.SGM 09SEN1
